Action is no longer needed on this legislation.
The Florida Legislature has adjourned for its regular 2015 session. HB 7123 passed the Florida House of Representatives without any anti-anchoring amendments however the Florida Senate did not act on the bill. While this legislation is no longer viable, BoatU.S. will continue to work on helping the state deal with derelict vessels while ensuring the full range of anchoring, and mooring options are available to active responsible boaters.
