Federal Training for Recreational Boaters? (Tell us what you think)

Congressman Peter King has sponsored a bill that will direct the Secretary of the department in which the Coast Guard is operating to study and report to the Congress regarding recreational vessel operator training.

Called the “Brianna Lieneck Boating Safety Act of 2019” after a young girl who died in a boating accident back in 2005, House Bill 1669 directs the study of existing training conducted by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Power Squadron and other organizations, and to look at how a Federal training and testing program can be harmonized with State training and testing programs.

What do you think? Should there be a Federal training and testing program?
