Boating and snowmobiling safety law approved by Michigan House

A bipartisan package of bills that makes boating, snowmobiling and use of other recreational vehicles safer has been approved by the Michigan House of Representatives and sent to Gov. Rick Snyder for consideration.
The measures lower the lawful blood-alcohol-content level for boaters, snowmobilers and operators of off-road vehicles from 0.10 percent to 0.08 percent, the same level as operators of motor vehicles. The legislation was introduced by a trio of state representatives, including 59th District Rep. Matt Lori.
Victor Fitz, president of the Michigan Prosecuting Attorneys Association and Cass County prosecutor, has been working with lawmakers on the legislation since 2005.
