'Booster seat' bill advances
Hastings Minnesota 745 Spiral Boulevard 55033

A House panel approved legislation Wednesday that calls for new vehicle safety requirements for children.

The bill by Rep. Melissa Hortman, DFL-Brooklyn Park, would require children who are under age 8 and shorter than 4 feet 9 inches to use a child safety restraint. Existing law requires that only of children under age 4.
