SOUTH CAROLINA HOUSE BILL 3308
Basically this bill places restrictions on distances that a personal watercraft can be operated above idle speed when close to a moored vessel, wharf, dock or person in the water. This has been a continuing issue on the lakes especially in any narrow coves. Please see this link to read the bill and encourage your representatives to support it.
The Friends of Lake Keowee have posted information on H3308 Wake Zone Bill: “…the latest rendition of the Bill. It has again been amended and did not pass the third reading on the Senate floor.
Now the bill is going to be conferenced with three Senators and three House of Representatives to iron out the differences. If they concur with all the amendments it will go to the Governor’s desk to be signed into law. If they do not concur, the bill will be dead and we will have to start over again next year.”
