From the AP - Star Tribune.

Life jackets for kids requirement signed into law
Associated Press
May 6, 2005 VESTS0507
A new state law requires children under ten to wear life jackets while boating.

Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the Grant Allen law, named after Grant Jestus, a five-year-old drowning victim from Blaine. Jestus fell off a boat two years ago without a life preserver.

The new law doesn't apply to children who stay under the deck of a boat or in an enclosed cabin, those riding on licensed commercial boats or in boats anchored for swimming or diving.

Forty other states already have laws requiring children to wear life jackets on boats. Federal law requires children under 13 to wear life preservers, but doesn't cover all the states' waterways.
