Petition Procedures

Any interested person can request that the Marine Board adopt, amend, or repeal a boating regulation through a petition. To be considered, petitions include the following:

 
(1) Name and address of petitioner(s) (email address preferred)
(2) Names and addresses of other interested parties (email address preferred)
(3) The proposed language in full (for new rules) or the existing rule language in full with proposed additions and deletions clearly indicated (for rule amendments).
(4) An explanation of the petition that includes facts or arguments in sufficient detail to show the reasons for and effects of adoption, amendment or repeal of the rule.
(5) If the petition requests the amendment or repeal of an existing rule, the petition must also contain comments on:
(a) Options for achieving the existing rule's substantive goals while reducing the negative economic impact on businesses;
(b) The continued need for the existing rule;
(c) The complexity of the existing rule;
(d) The extent to which the existing rule overlaps, duplicates, or conflicts with other state or federal rules and with local government regulations; and
(e) The degree to which technology, economic conditions, or other factors have changed in the subject area affected by the existing rule since the agency adopted the rule.

Petitions not complying with these requirements may be returned by the director.
