July 20, 2012

News 12 Long Island story (7/19/12) on Senator Fuschillo's legislation to strengthen the New York's Boating Under the Influence (BUI) laws.

The legislation would create parity with the state's existing DWI laws by creating felony charges for operating a boat drunk with a child onboard and an "aggravated BWI" charge for high BAC offenders. Additionally, it would require mandatory driver license and boating privilege suspensions for BUI and DUI offenders, as well as require all boaters to complete a boating safety course.
