Young boaters targeted in new bill

A new bill in Raleigh is targeting young boaters. Wednesday, House lawmakers approved a bill that would make people under the age of 26 complete a boating safety course, or pass a boating operation test. Violators would not face any monetary penalties, just court costs. The North Carolina Wildlife Commission would not comment on the proposed bill until it passes the Senate.
