Action Needed: Save Cal Boating
Dear BoatUS Member,
In just two days, on May 14, the California Senate Budget Subcommittee will vote on a critical proposal that could alter the future of boating in your state. Cal Boating, your state's boating agency, could be dismantled and boaters will lose a department that works on your behalf, for boating safety and infrastructure. Please take a minute, right now to call your state Senator and ask for their vote to save Cal Boating.
You can find out more about the issue, and a sample message, at: http://www.rboc.org/call_to_arms.html. We can't let Cal Boating - and your boating dollars - get swallowed up in state bureaucracy. But time is running out so, please telephone your senator or send an e-mail message today. (If you need phone numbers, go to: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/yourleg.html)
For specific questions about boating issues or BoatUS Government Affairs, please e-mail the department at GovtAffairs@BoatUS.com
Search and contact your local officials.
