Boerner Horvath's Bill to Enhance Boat Safety Passes Assembly


SACRAMENTO — Today, AB 335, Assemblymember Boerner Horvath’s bill to keep boat owners and renters safer by allowing manufacturers to contact buyers in case of a safety recall, passed the Assembly on a bipartisan 74-1 vote. 

In 2018, the landmark California Consumer Privacy Act passed, followed by the overwhelming passage of Proposition 24 in 2020, giving California consumers some of the highest privacy protections in the US. AB 335 extends the 2019 exemptions for road vehicles to watercraft and boat dealers, ensuring that consumers can receive necessary warranty and recall information to keep themselves and their families safer while on the water. 

“California offers the best privacy protections of any state in the country,” said Assemblymember Boerner Horvath. “We also have more recreational boating than just about any other state, and it’s important that folks are safe while enjoying time out on the water. AB 335 ensures that consumers can be informed of recall or warranty information, and in so doing retains our robust privacy protections, while simultaneously ensuring boating safety. I’m proud to see it move forward with such overwhelming support.”
