Tell Georgia lawmakers to support HB-833 to restore boaters’ access to
The Georgia General Assembly is debating HB-833, a bill that would restore boaters’ access by fixing an extreme rule set by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
Why do boaters need HB-833? It restores boaters’ access to Georgia’s coastlines by:
- Reducing shoreline anchorage from 1,000 feet to zero; and
- Reducing anchorage setback to 150 feet for any structure, including a private dock, pier, bridge, or wharf.
HB-833 is good news for the recreational boating community and makes public water exactly what it should be – public. Tell Georgia lawmakers to support HB-833!
