Legislative Issues affecting TN Paddlesports Businesses
TWRA continues to push for new regulations and Tennessee Paddlesports Association (TPA) needs your help.
Although we have made progress in our fight to ensure that paddlesports outfitters are represented fairly in the proposed TWRA regulations there is still a lot of work to do. As outfitters we must band together to ensure that the businesses we have worked so hard to build and grow do not face unreasonable regulation at the hands of TWRA.
