News Release
Marine Board Holding Hearing on Proposed Muffler Rules - 02/14/18

The Oregon State Marine Board will be holding a hearing on the proposed addition of a shoreline sound measurement procedure into the rules for recreational motorboats on February 27, at 6 pm. The meeting will be held at the Marine Board office, 435 Commercial St. NE, in Salem.

The agency convened a rules advisory committee to discuss the proposed rule amendment which aims to provide law enforcement a mechanism to safely test, from the shoreline, sound levels produced by recreational motorboats that are underway for violations of noise standards from ineffective or non-existent muffling devices. The committee was also charged in developing a fiscal impact.

Written comments will be accepted until March 2, 2018 by 5 p.m. and can be submitted via email to osmb.rulemaking@oregon.gov or by U.S. mail to: June LeTarte, Administrative Rules Coordinator, 435 Commercial St. NE, Suite 400, Salem, OR 97301. Comments via telephone will not be accepted.
