Summary as passed Senate: (all summaries)
Personal flotation devices required for children; civil penalty. Requires children 12 years of age or younger to wear a Type I, II, III, or V U.S. Coast Guard-approved personal flotation device (life jackets) on recreational vessels. This requirement applies only in those waters where there is concurrent state and federal jurisdiction. The Director of Game and Inland Fisheries may assess any recreational vessel operator found in violation of this provision a civil penalty of up to $100. However, this penalty may be waived if the person completes a boating safety education course. All penalties collected are to be paid to the Motorboat and Water Safety Fund of the Game Protection Fund. The bill does not apply to a recreational vessel that is moored or anchored, or to children below deck or in an enclosed cabin. The enactment of the bill is delayed until January 1, 2011.
