Amendment on Lake Havasu restrictions passes U.S. House
(Havasu News, 7/14)

“The U.S. House of Representatives passed an amendment this week that would prohibit the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service from using federal funds to restrict recreational tubing, waterskiing or wake boarding on Lake Havasu. No changes are likely to occur on the lake until the legislation meets approval by the U.S. Senate, and is signed into law by President Obama. […]In May 2015, the Fish and Wildlife Service expanded a no-wake zone in Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. The restrictions drew city and county administrators’ disdain by inconveniencing boaters without any advance public notice, Gosar said, and implemented two days prior to Memorial Day weekend. […]Gosar led a bipartisan effort within the House, until Gosar’s amendment was attached to the Department of Interior, Environment and Related Agencies Appropriations Act for fiscal year 2017.”
