Tour to kick off new Ga. boater law

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (WTOC) -

Georgia state officials and Gov. Nathan Deal are scheduled to tour Georgia this week to educate boaters on new laws scheduled to take effect this Wednesday.

Officials are scheduled to speak Tuesday and Wednesday at several marinas to remind boaters that the Jake and Griffin Prince BUI law passed during the recent legislative session.

The new law lowers the legal blood-alcohol limit of boat operators to .08 - the same limit for motor vehicle drivers.
