Delays the implementation of the ban on the use of felt-soled boots and waders in state waters for one year (until April 1, 2012) and requires the Department of Fish and Wildlife to distribute informational material and hold a minimum of three public meetings before the ban goes into effect.

Notes: The ban on the use of felt-soled boots and waders was passed in 2010 (to go into effect on April 1, 2011) to slow the spread of aquatic diseases and aquatic nuisance species such as didymo. Didymo, also known as rock snot, is an invasive algae that can be spread by the water that gets soaked into felt-soled boots and waders.
