Federal Advocacy

Acting as your voice on Capitol Hill, the MRAA Government Relations team assures that the recreational boating industry, and the perspective of dealers it serves, is heard and respected. From discussions around supporting important conservation programs, reauthorizing keystone programs like the Sport Fish Restoration and Boating Trust Fund, or advocating for more boating-related infrastructure, we make certain Congress works for you.

State Advocacy

Each State represents unique opportunities and challenges for the recreational boating industry and MRAA Members. Whether contesting harmful right to repair legislation, advocating for favorable tax and insurance policies or supporting efforts to create mandatory boater education, the MRAA Government Relations Team is dedicated to supporting you in state legislatures across the country.
