Smarter Boat Registration and Dredging Bill for NC

Please thank your State Senator and Representative for passing a smarter S.B. 58 which raises boater registration fees in a common sense manner while generating reasonable means to pay for dredging North Carolina's coastal inlets and essential waterways as well as inland lakes.

S.B. 58, which was amended and added to the House Budget Bill has passed the House and now awaits Governor Pat McCrory's signature.
