Government Affairs


Federal legislation and policies can have a significant impact on the work of state boating law administrators. NASBLA monitors relevant activity in Congress, the White House, and federal agencies and updates its members with timely information. We also work in conjunction with other associations to communicate members’ interests, views, and needs to government policy makers.
