Finally... One I think we should support. HB-703 (Workman; Perry)
and SB-1454 (Hutson)
These proposed bills restrict the stopping of vessels for safety
checks (by FWC , County, and Local Officers) without "Probable Cause". Be nice to have the same rights as you do behind the wheel
of the car.
While I don't agree with the practices of the introducing House Member
(Riding the kids
on the bow of the boat is kinda like riding them on the hood
of the car) the basic premise still stands. Dislike having my day interrupted for a random "Safety Check" while headed back to the mooring
ball. Yeah, I got my jacket, whistle, etc... Same as last week. Same as every week. I didn't get old, being too bold.
Anyway, a couple we can watch and hopefully support.
