Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Boat Registration and Safety Act. Provides that water skiers, tubers, parasailers, or other persons towed by the motorboat shall be considered part of the total number of passengers and cargo allowed by a watercraft's capacity plate for the purpose of determining a motorboat's carrying capacity. Provides that a person that falsely alters a water usage stamp, falsifies a record under this Act, or counterfeits any license under this Act is guilty of a Class A misdemeanor. Provides that a violation of certain provisions concerning boat rental service providers is a Class B misdemeanor. Provides that a person who is convicted or found guilty (instead of "convicted") of a violation of certain Sections of the Act shall have his or her privilege of operating a watercraft on State waterways suspended by the Department of Natural Resources for a period of not less than one year. To the list of offenses subject to the one-year suspension, adds violations of the Sections concerning resistance to officers, falsifying documents, and felony titling offenses. To the definition of "authorized emergency watercraft", adds vehicles equipped with alternately flashing blue lights. Effective immediately.
