UPDATE: Governor Haslam Signs Noah Dean and Nate Act

Posted: Updated:
UPDATE:  Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam Tuesday held a ceremonial signing of the Noah Dean and Nate Act, named in honor of Noah Winstead and Nate Lynam, two Morristown fifth-graders who were electrocuted on July 4, 2012 while swimming at a Tennessee marina. 

The legislation specifically outlines requirements for the installation of ground fault circuit interrupters in and around boat docks and marinas, authorizes the State Fire Marshal’s Office to conduct safety inspections of boat docks and marinas to ensure compliance with applicable codes, and requires marinas to post safety signage notifying individuals of the potential for electric shock if swimming within 100 yards of the boat dock.
