This bill (SB 12) would establish a no wake zone within 100 feet of a lake’s shoreline for motorboats. This proposal includes an opt-out provision, allowing local government to exclude lakes if the law significantly impacts recreation. Pick-up and drop zones for water skiers would also be excluded.
The Senate Environment Committee has scheduled a public hearing on SB 12 for Wednesday February 11, 10:30 AM, 201 Southeast, State Capitol.
If you are planning on testifying at the hearing, please arrive a little early to fill out a hearing slip, and bring enough copies of your testimony for the five member Senate Environment Committee. Please let the WAL office know if you are planning on attending, and we'll greet you at the door!
