Maryland Sets Standard for Paddlesport Access
Improving Paddlers access to Maryland’s Waterways along Bridges and Roads
On April 9th 2013 Maryland's Governor Martin O'Malley signed HB 797 into law allowing greater access along the states bridges and roadways.  This accomplishment will allow greater recreation opportunities for paddlers, improve safety for paddlers and motorists, stimulate the economies and livability of local communities, and enhance the health and quality of life by providing these beneficial recreation opportunities.
This bill was supported by the American Canoe Association, Chesapeake Conservancy, Maryland Recreation and Parks Association, and American Sportfishing Association during the Senate and House hearings.
