Alcohol-Related Boating Deaths Up in Wisconsin Submitted: 05/26/2013
MADISON - Wisconsin had the nation's third-highest number of alcohol-related boating deaths last year.

That was the same year a legislative bill to stiffen penalties on drunken boaters fell flat.

Intoxicated boating killed eight people in the state last year.

The failed legislation would have banned a person from driving a boat for at least a year after a drunken-boating offense.

Lawmakers think the bill may have a better chance if it's reintroduced this summer.
