The governor yesterday signed a new bill into law aimed at encouraging boaters to equip themselves with safety features like emergency radio beacons.
The legislation is an extension of a boater safety bill he signed into law last year. Scott referenced the 2015 disappearance of Tequesta teens Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen while signing the law, which makes a limited-time discount on registration fees for boaters with the devices permanent.
It also increases the discounts.
