Update on Department of Boating and Waterways:

California's growing budget crisis continues, without any easy answers. DBW has survived the summer budget heat because of significant support from Recreational Boaters of California, boat clubs, and individual boaters. Boaters are encouraged to continue to let their elected state officials know the importance of DBW, which is 100% funded by boating fees.
