Texas governor signs kill-switch law
from Trade Only Today
Recently, Texas Governor Greg Abbot signed a bill that requires boat operators to be physically connected to a boat’s emergency shutoff switch into law. The bill was called “Kali’s Law,” after 16-year-old Kali Gorzell died in a 2012 boating accident in Port Aransas, Texas. According to TV station KVUE, a family friend was driving a boat that Gorzell was a passenger on when it “swapped ends.” The teenager fell off the boat and struck the propeller.
