The Water Sports Industry Association (WSIA) was pleased to have Senator Maria Sachs participate in a parasailing outing on October 2, 2014. Senator Sachs and Representative Gwyndolen “Gwyn” Clarke-Reed joined the Executive Director of the WSIA, Larry Meddock, in kicking off the implementation of SB. 320, the legislative bill that passed the Florida House and Senate introducing new regulations for the parasail community.
“The WSIA was happy to have the Senator go up on a parasail and see how much of a safe and fun experience it is,” Meddock said. Senator Sachs made a promise to the entire Florida legislature that if the bill went into law, she would go parasailing to exhibit and promote the new safety measures that have been introduced. The WSIA and the parasail industry is grateful for the work Senator Sachs and Rep. Clarke-Reed did to get SB. 320 passed.
