Republican Sen.-Elect Josh Hawley of Missouri says he’ll reintroduce a duck boat safety bill that his campaign rival Sen. Claire McCaskill proposed after a duck boat sank in July, killing 17 people.
Hawley said he’ll bring the legislation up again after he assumes office in January.
McCaskill led a federal law proposal to increase the safety of amphibious vehicles after the duck boat at Table Rock Lake in Missouri.
His bill required that the vehicles comply with US Coast Guard regulations aimed at ensuring that they were standing.
Hawley replaced the Democratic senator this month. He said McCaskill has a right to try to encode federal security recommendations.
As the chief attorney of Missouri, Hawley sued the duck boat company.
