State Assemblyman Ted Lieu will answer questions from audience members regarding boating related issues at a boating town hall meeting scheduled at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, August 13th at the California Yacht Club, 4469 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey.

Lieu also plans to discuss Assembly Bill (AB) 166, which he introduced last year to fight the problem of abandoned boats that he says are polluting state waterways and harming aquatic life.

The public meeting is co-sponsored by the Association of Santa Monica Bay Yacht Clubs, The California Association of Harbor Masters & Port Captains, the LAX Coastal Chamber of Commerce, King Harbor Boaters Advisory Panel and the Marina del Rey Community Boating Council.

Heal the Bay, the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission and Kids & Fishing will provide additional resources to attendees.
