Pilot Project Seaplanes Land In State Parks

Concerning an authorization of a pilot program to allow amphibious seaplanes to operate in designated state parks.
Session:
2017 Regular Session

Current state park law excludes seaplanes from the definition of a 'vessel', and applicable park rules essentially prohibit seaplanes from landing in or taking off from state park water bodies. The bill creates a pilot project to allow amphibious seaplanes to land in at least 2 state parks after the seaplanes have been inspected for and decontaminated of aquatic nuisance species. The parks and wildlife commission may adopt rules to implement the pilot program.
