Will Kansas Politicos Prevent Another Amusement Park Decapitation?!?!
While critics claim that this legislation won't help make locals safer, it still stands head and shoulders above the idea that doing nothing is acceptable following one of the most horrific tragedies in Kansas History. Take a look:
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Kansas legislators are accelerating work on stricter regulations for amusement park rides following the death last summer of a lawmaker's 10-year-old son on a giant waterslide. The House Federal and State Affairs Committee approved a bill Wednesday that would require owners of permanent amusement rides to have them inspected annually by a professional engineer.
