Local Watercraft Controls Requests
On Thursday, April 2, 2020, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed Public Acts 70, 71 and 72 into law. These three laws allow local units of government to request additional marine regulations on waters within their jurisdiction.
- Each local unit of government is responsible for reviewing the processes and determining which local watercraft regulation is appropriate for waters within their jurisdiction.
- Each process has a separate and unique procedure that must be followed to ensure there are no delays in the request.
Submitting a resolution does not guarantee the approval of any local watercraft regulation.
