Recreational boating and marine manufacturing provide high-quality jobs and economic vitality – assets that can be significantly harmed by poorly crafted laws and regulations. NMMA’s State Government Relations division monitors legislation and regulatory issues in all 50 states, pursuing pro-active goals as well as defending the marine industry against potentially harmful government initiatives. The NMMA GR State division also employs contract lobbyists in the largest boating states to provide a strong local presence and a finely-tuned early warning system. NMMA members receive regular legislative updates and alerts via The Washington Wave e-newsletter and issue-specific emails.
