Bill to increase boat registration fees gets through committee

Published: Thursday, May 2, 2013 at 10:21 AM.

Currently, it costs $15 a year to register a boat with the state, regardless of the vessel’s size. Boat owners get a $5 break if they pay for a three-year registration.

Under Brown’s latest measure, boats that are 25 feet long or less would pay $25 and vessels 26 feet and longer would pay $50 per year. Three-year registrations still would be allowed but would not come with a price break.

The bill’s effective date is Oct. 1, 2013, if it becomes law.
