Brianna's Law was named after Brianna Lieneck, an 11-year-old Long Island girl who was killed in a 2005 boating accident. The law was enacted in 2019 to help make the state's waters safer by requiring all boat operators to complete an approved boating safety course. The end of the law's five-year, age-based phase-in window is fast approaching. As of January 1, 2025, all Empire State boaters, regardless of age, will need to have completed an authorized boating safety course.

The nonprofit BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water, the boating safety arm of Boat Owners Association of The United States, offers New York boaters the only free, NASBLA-approved online boating safety course that meets Brianna's Law requirements and improves on-water safety. More than 2.5 million students have taken the BoatUS Foundation's free online Boating Safety Courses to date, which provide approved boating safety education in 36 states including New York.
