Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill provides that the personal flotation device requirements under current
law do not apply to a stand-up paddleboard with respect to any person on the board
who is 18 years of age or older. This bill defines “stand-up paddleboard” to mean a
buoyant board designed to be manually propelled on water by a person paddling from
a standing or kneeling position.
Under current law, every boat is required to carry at least one personal flotation
device for each person on board or being attended by the boat.
The people of the state of Wisconsin, represented in senate and assembly, do
enact as follows:
AB358,1 3Section 1. 30.62 (3) (a) of the statutes is amended to read:
