Watercraft Excise Tax UPDATE!

Breaking News: Last week, the Senate Transportation Committee unanimously voted to remove the 100% increase to the Watercraft Excise Tax. You made your voice heard and they listened!

To borrow from the update our friends at the Recreational Boating Association of Washington sent out:  “This is a tribute to all of YOU and the power of grass-roots advocacy and recreational boaters making their voice heard.  Using the Action Alert put together by the Recreational Boating Association of Washington (RBAW) and the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), more than 5,000 of you sent over 17,000 messages to lawmakers throughout Washington State, urging removal of a doubling of this tax.”

If you have a moment, please send in an additional thank-you email to your state Senators. Like with the last alert, we have pre-written the message for you so all you have to is to hit “send”.
