                                    In the closing days of the 2003 California Legislative Session in September,
                                        two bills failed passage with serious impact on recreational boating.

   AB 694
       Thanks to Republican solidarity in the State Senate, AB 694, which would change the regulations regarding offshore, or out-of-state, delivery of boats
   and the state sales tax, failed by three votes of passing into law. The bill, which requires a two-thirds majority, or 27 Senate votes to pass, fell short at 24-
   13. The partisan vote is obvious as the Senate has 25 Democrats and 15 Republicans. The missing votes represented abstentions by one Democrat and
   two Republicans.
       The bill was granted “reconsideration,” but never came up for another vote before the session ended, presumably because the proponents could not
   muster the necessary three votes. Boating is not completely out of the woods, however, because AB 694 has been designated a “two-year bill” so it can be
   revived when the Legislature reconvenes in January.
       To over simplify, the bill would extend the time from 90 days to one year that a yacht (or airplane or RV) must remain out of California after the pur-
   chase is completed to be exempt from the state sales tax.
       AB 694 slipped through the Assembly as a completely different measure, being limited by amendments to granting sales tax immunity to aircraft
   brought into the state for maintenance or repair. It was apparent the bill could not earn the two-thirds majority in the Assembly in its original form.

   SB 1043
       This was the “Castaic Lake Rescue Bill,” but time ran out on the legislators before it could be voted upon. The bill will be revived in January.
   Meanwhile, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has approved funding to keep the lake's recreation facilities open until January in the hope that
   some financial assistance will be forthcoming.
       SCMA representatives persuaded the Senate to amend SB 1043 to appropriate $900,000 from the Harbors & Watercraft Revolving Fund to be given to
   Los Angeles County, which would contribute a matching amount, to keep Castaic open through the current fiscal year ending July 1, 2004. The bill also
   called for the appointment of a task force to recommend ways to promote consistent funding for the Castaic Lake operation.
       Even if SB 1043 had come up for a vote before the session ended, it probably would have failed passage because in those closing days, the Republicans
   were refusing to vote for any of the measures requiring two-thirds majorities because the Democrats of breaking the overall budget agreement.
       It must be noted that the Department of Boating & Waterways, the Boating & Waterways commission, and a coalition of other marine associations
   (NCMA, MRA, CMPHA, and the Harbor Masters) are opposed to the bill. They thought it would set a bad precedent to grant funds for operation expenses;
   traditionally the HWRF is used to build, maintain and repair facilities. The association coalition proposed to make the appropriation a 10-year repayable
   loan rather than a grant.

       The recent boating fatalities on the Parker Strip on the Colorado River probably will encourage renewed efforts in the California Legislature to estab-
   lish mandatory boat operator licensing. SCMA will continue to work for more education, stricter enforcement and heavy penalties (including mandatory
   safety class attendance for offenders) to increase safety on the water.
