BoatU.S. Action Alert - Urge your Senators to support the Modern Fish Act, a law that is good for anglers and good for fish

Take Action 

September 17, 2018

Dear BoatU.S. Member:

An important positive change to federal laws involving saltwater fishing is moving through Congress and your senators need to hear from you today. The Modern Fish Act  will help improve public access to America's federal waters, promote conservation of natural marine resources, and spur economic growth by fixing key issues in the law governing marine fisheries. Please ask your senators to support this legislation that will help ensure fisheries management that works for recreational fishing.

The Modern Fish Act has passed the House and we are now counting on the Senate to vote on its companion bill S.1520. With only limited time on a busy legislative calendar the time to act on this legislation is now. Contact your senators today:  Take Action
