ACA Requests Member Inclusion on TWRA Rule Making Advisory Board


Recently, the Tennessee legislature granted the Tennessee Wildlife and Recreation Agency (TWRA) authority, under ยง 69-9-227 [SB1135/HB0785], to enact rules to regulate permitting and fee collection for commercial paddle craft operations. The ACA requested that the TWRA carefully consider which rivers are presenting the most common commercially related paddling conflicts, and to ensure that any Advisory Board include ACA members to provide input on any proposed fee collection requirements and mitigation. Read the full letter below.
