fter its first look at the Trump administrations new budget blueprint released March 16, Boat Owners Association of The United States
(BoatUS) says that boat owners should be aware of potential budget impacts that could affect boating safety, access and the health of
our waterways.

The administrations budget proposal clearly reflects a different set of priorities over previous years, said BoatUS Manager of
Government Affairs David Kennedy. Proposed cuts to agencies such as the Departments of Commerce and Interior, Army Corps of
Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency could lead to changes for many programs that matter to boating.

Added Kennedy, Considering boatings $121.5 billion impact, we believe this would be short sighted and negatively affect the boating experience for
our nations 12 million boat owners.

Kennedy notes that under the budget proposals shifting priorities, US Coast Guard funding could be slashed 14 percent to just $7.8 billion, while the
services parent, the Department of Homeland Security, is increased.

As the budget process continues, boaters may need to communicate with their members of Congress regarding programs that fund clean-water efforts,
clean marina programs, navigation improvements, regional waterway restoration such as the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes and Puget Sound, and
boating safety programs. We are keeping a close watch.

BoatUS will continue to monitor the budget process, ensure that the recreational boaters voice is heard and advise its more than half-million members
of boating-related budget items.

Recreational Boaters of California Concerned About Tax Deduction Issue

RBOC is opposing AB 71 [Chiu] unless the measure is amended to remove the provision that would eliminate the state tax deduction for mortgage
interest on second homes.

RBOC supports the provisions of AB 71 that propose to increase the amount of tax credits available for low-income housing. However, RBOC is
concerned that the provisions of AB 71 that would eliminate the state tax deduction for mortgage interest on second homes would lead a significant
number of prospective boat purchasers not to invest in a recreational vessel.

This would have a direct, negative impact on the future purchase of recreational vessels, the multibillion dollar state boating industry including ancillary
products and services, as well as the economic health of many communities across the state that rely on revenues generated by boaters.

It is also important to note that the amount of the mortgage interest deduction is already capped regardless of whether the taxpayer has one home or
two, and that recreational vessels that are second homes may not necessarily be vacation homes but could be used by owners who commute to work
during the week.
