Liability Insurance Premiums

The Board of Pilotage Commissioners (BPC) secured public officials and employment practices liability insurance to cover the $10 million dollar gap left by the state's self-insurance program. This coverage is needed due to the unique nature of the BPC as a training, licensing, and regulatory agency. (Pilotage Account - State)

Additional Pilot Training Stipends

The BPC was transitioned from non-appropriated to appropriated funding as of July 1, 2019. Additional funding is provided for stipends for the current and foreseeable number of pilot trainees in the program. BPC forecasts that up to 10 trainees will be in the program going forward to fill pilot positions due to projected retirements and the BPC’s recent decision to raise the number of authorized pilot licenses in both pilotage districts.
