Legislative Concepts for 2023

COMING SOON! 

The agency will schedule Open Houses throughout the state in an effort to better understand needs and concerns in local communities and what the agency can do to improve services. We hope you'll be involved!

The 2023 Legislative Process

During even-numbered years, Marine Board staff proposes legislative concepts to its five-member Board based on feedback from stakeholders and partners, to improve recreational boating laws and services. Legislative concepts approved by the Marine Board are submitted to the Department of Administrative Services (DAS). After review from DAS, legislative concepts are forwarded to the Governor's Office for consideration. If legislative concepts are approved by the Governor's Office, they move to Legislative Counsel to be drafted into bills.    




Once a legislative concept becomes a bill, it follows this process:
