In a letter to New Jersey Governor Christie, BoatU.S. has urged the state to continue to provide funding to the "I Boat NJ" program. This program is user funded and provides support to the recreational boating industry. It funds a range of efforts that include boat ramps, education programs and boating law enforcement. It derives its revenue from the registration fees paid by recreational boaters.
