Legal limit for boaters lowered


Gov. Terry Branstad signed a bill into law on Wednesday that lowers the legal blood alcohol limit for boaters.

Senate File 7 lowers the B.A.C. for boaters from .10 to .08.

The B.A.C. level for motorists was lowered several years ago.

The requirement will apply to both power boats and sailboats, and on rivers, streams and lakes in the state.
