Freedom to Float BillFor the past several weeks, ACA Executive Director Wade Blackwood and Stewardship Coordinator Greg Rolf have been meeting in Richmond with various Senators and their staffs to support SB629, the 'Freedom to Float' Bill.

Blackwood also testified on behalf of paddlers in front of the Virginia Committee on Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources last week, where the bill was approved by a 7-6 vote.

On January 30, 2014, the Virginia Senate Bill was voted on and defeated by the Senate (10-Y 30-N). To get a complete list of who voted, please click here

Contact your local Virginia Senator to express your thoughts on the outcome of SB629.

The ACA would like to extend a special thanks to ACA Whitewater Kayak Instructor Trainer Dave Kessman of Virginia for all of his help over the past 2 years on this bill.

If you have specific questions about the bill, please contact ACA Executive Director Wade Blackwood.
