House Bill 227 has passed the Senate to exempt out-of-state paddlers participating in an organized event from the WUS requirement.
As the next step – Governor Rauner has 60 days to sign it – if he does not sign it within this period – it will become law.
If you wish to contact the Governor urging him to sign it – Senator Morrison who sponsored the bill in the Senate, suggests that you contact Governor Rauner at the following address.
Please include your suggestion that all out-of-state paddlers should be exempted as well.
Thank you – Sigrid
