    Carbon Monoxide Warnings Considered in Arizona

    Following the death of a young girl on an Arizona lake, a bill, H.B. 2024, has been introduced in the state legislature that would require carbon monoxide (CO) warning stickers be placed on any new or used motorized watercraft sold in the state. The bill would allow standardized labels developed by NMMA to be used, pending approval by the state. The legislation places responsibility for placement of the stickers on the marine dealer, and would require the state and boat seller to provide CO education pamphlets to boat buyers or in boat registration materials. H.B. 2024 would also prohibit a person from being on or around swim platforms or exhaust ports while engines are in operation. NMMA is closely watching this bill to ensure it does not conflict with similar requirements in Washington State and California. Please click here to view more information.

    The operative words are sold in the state. That is the way the law is written in CA & WA and proposed in AZ. So if you bought your boat in another state, technically you are ok and don't have to display the sticker. Although WA DOL intreprets the law as operating in the state. It hasn't been tested in court yet. More government regulation to protect the dummies

    It seems to be directed to Boat dealers, and not the private seller.

    Do you think a sticker is necessary? Education has more of an inpact than a sticker. How many 12 year olds read warning labels?

    This is where boater education would shine, and fine those who fail to comply. Common sense go a long way.

    If they do it like up here in WA, you'll get it with your renewal notice and told to put it on.

    In CA we get 2 stickers with the registration & Tags. 1 Sticker is to be affixed above the waterline on the transom of the boat, and the other is to be affixed at the helm in a visible location.

    I've never heard of anyone getting sighted for not having the stickers on their boat.
