Park rangers say the change is meant to have a positive impact on air quality across the state. "I think you're going to see more lakes and parks going to these emissions standards. We're trying to get clean air here in the Valley, we all know what that means for people with asthma and health problems," said Sgt. Mark Deleon, California State Parks.Doh! I forgot the BILLIONS that are saved in healthcare costs and millions of lives saved! Color me skeptical.
The emissions standards mostly apply to 2-stroke out board engines. Those engines burn a mixture of gasoline and oil, and if they are older than a 2001 model -- they do not qualify.

Many 2-stroke boat engines banned in California state parks
Do they really think this ban will make a difference? This is well beyond the law of deminishing returns.
