On Monday, NMMA director of state government relations, Libby Yranski participated in an aquatic invasive species (AIS) discussion at the Western Governors’ Association’s (WGA) annual meeting in Colorado. Combatting and prevent the spread of AIS is a top recreational boating industry advocacy priority at every level of government.
During the panel discussion, Yranski spoke alongside Elizabeth Brown, Colorado’s Invasive Species Coordinator regarding the impact of AIS on the boating community, as well as the continued partnership that state agencies, NMMA members, and the American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC) have maintained since the ABYC AIS Summit in 2015.
This year’s annual meeting was attended by 11 governors, including: WGA Chair David Ige (Hawai’i), WGA Vice Chair Doug Burgum (North Dakota), Jared Polis (Colorado), Lourdes Leon Guerrero (Guam), Brad Little (Idaho), Laura Kelly (Kansas), Steve Sisolak (Nevada), Kate Brown (Oregon), Kristi Noem (South Dakota), Gary Herbert (Utah) and Mark Gordon (Wyoming).
