Lawmaker wants higher boat fees to pay for dredging

Posted: Updated:
JACKSONVILLE, N.C. -

An Onslow County senator wants boaters to pay more money to register their boats.

State Senator Harry Brown says the money raised would go to create a program called the "Shallow Draft Inlet Dredging Fund".

Right now, it costs $15 a year to register a boat in North Carolina.

The proposal would charge fees that would depend on the length of the boat.
