That is the Tennessee Fish and Wildlife Commission. Apparently power boaters don't like having to deal with paddle powered craft on Tennessee waterways. I suppose the lack of noise and pollution offends people who think you need to run 80 miles per hour in a boat to catch a fish. The plan is to regulate (tax) rental boats, even rental boats that are operated by municipalities such as Kingston.

Commissioners made it clear Friday's action is just the first step of an ongoing process with potential changes, including fees, to come in the future.
