The Michigan Boating Industries Association (MBIA) thanks the Michigan State House and Senate for speedy support of bills.

The package included assistance to public and private marinas and helped streamline the regulatory process within the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.  The package received near unanimous support from both sides of the aisle and is headed to the Governor for his signature.

"We commend the Senate and House for their commitment to help Michigan's marinas and Michigan's boaters," said MBIA Board Chairman Jim Coburn .  "We are pleased our legislators recognize the importance of Michigan's boating industry to the future of Michigan.  Thanks also needs to be given to Governor Snyder for identifying the crisis in early January and issuing a call to action.  We look forward to his signature on this much needed assistance for Michigan's boating industry."

Michigan ranks as one of the top states in the nation in registered watercraft.  Recreational boating brings a $3.9 billion economic impact to our state.

The Michigan Boating Industries Association is a non-profit trade association representing Michigan's $3.9 billion marine industry.  It is dedicated to the advancement, promotion and protection of recreational boating in Michigan.
