Current Bill Summary

SB 913 - Currently, children under the age of seven years old are required to wear a personal flotation device when on board any watercraft on the waters of Missouri. This act names the provision "Hannah's Law" and raises the age until which a child is required to wear a personal flotation device to twelve. This act also requires a child who is wading or swimming in navigable public waters more than three feet in depth to wear a personal flotation device. This act exempts children from the personal flotation device requirement if supervised by a lifeguard.

This act is similar to HB 2212 (2022), identical to SB 205 (2021), similar to HB 777 (2021), identical to SB 711 (2020), HB 1727 (2020), and SB 119 (2019), and similar to HB 409 (2019), HB 2341 (2018), SB 324 (2017), SB 616 (2016), SB 483 (2015), and HB 440 (2011).
