We wrap up our discussion on some of the most significant new 2016 Illinois Laws with a look at new regulations regarding boating.
Boating Safety – All boaters born after January 1, 1998, operating a boat with a 10-horsepower engine or greater, must obtain a boating safety certificate approved by the Department of Natural Resources. Boats are as dangerous as cars and boaters should be required to have a license like the drivers of cars. Boating accidents often occur because of the same negligence and recklessness that cause car crashes. Increasing boating safety will help prevent injuries and even deaths.
Other new 2016 laws include: new nursing home regulations, new laws giving immunity to underage drinkers, and new laws regarding concussions in youth sports.
