The purpose of the Northern Caucus is to promote boating safety by providing a medium for the exchange of views and experiences; by fostering interstate, federal-state and international cooperation and coordination in solving boating problems; by promoting greater uniformity in laws and regulations; by increasing efficiency in administration and enforcement of boating laws; and, to the extent feasible and desirable, by promoting consensus of views on any subject within the purview of the caucus, including the effective presentation and dissemination of such views.
