House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: March 19, 2019 02:11 PM
From: Representative Steven C. Mentzer and Rep. Kerry A. Benninghoff
To: All House members
Subject: Fish and Boat - Public Safety
We will be introducing legislation to ensure greater safety on Pennsylvania’s waterways. Our legislation, which will amend the Fish and Boat Code (Title 30), will provide needed consistency across existing law and increase penalties for harmful, reckless behavior.

The legislation will clarify the penalties and corrective courses of action for those who:
  • Intentionally or recklessly destroy or cause damage to Fish and Boat Commission property
  • Operate motorboats while under the influence of a substance, with a minor on board and/or without the proper safety education certificates
  • Recklessly or with gross negligence cause serious bodily injury to another

    We can do more to ensure the safety of anglers, boaters, families and minors who enjoy recreation in our beautiful state. Please join us in cosponsoring this important bill.

Introduced as HB1185
