30 july 2015 FOGHORN advertisersindex LETTER FROM THE president Continued from page 4 newswire while avoiding incidents with recre- ational boaters. One solution might be to invite these waterways stakehold- ers to your operation and have them ride in your pilothouse with you to demonstrate your vantage point. It may be a most enlightening experi- ence for them.

However as a result of intervention by the Passenger Vessel Association the bill has been amended to clarify that it does not apply to the types of commer- cial passenger vessels operated by PVA members. The bill AB 638 was sponsored by Assemblyman Jim Frazier. PVA member Hornblower Cruises and Events of San Francisco alerted PVA Headquarters staff to the legislation after it had passed the California Assembly but before it had been considered by the California Senate. As originally written the bill applied to the operator of any vessel broadly defined in the California Harbors and Navigation Code as ships of all kinds steamboats steamships canal boats barges sailing vessels and every structure adapted to be navigated from place to place for the transportation of merchandise or persons. PVA pointed out to the bills sponsor and to the California Senate Committee of jurisdiction that the bill as written applied to PVA member vessels. This was inadvertent because the sponsor meant for it to cover recreational boats only. PVA provided language to make clear that Coast Guard-inspected passenger vessels and small passenger vessels as defined in section 2101 of the United States Code are exempt from the requirement. The California Senate amended the bill to incorporate PVAs suggested exemption language then approved the revised bill on June 22. The Assembly subsequently concurred in the Senates amendment.
