Re: 2013 Senate Bill 97 (Repeal child car seat penalty waiver provision )  by Admin003 on February 20, 2013 
Senator Caswell, under his constitutional right of protest (Art. 4, Sec. 18), protested against the passage of Senate Bill
No. 97 and moved that the statement he made during the discussion of the bill be printed as his reasons for voting “no.”
The motion prevailed.
Senator Caswell’s statement is as follows:
I think that folks should probably receive one chance at not having the car seat. There might be financial situations. It
could be through ignorance if they don’t have it. They should be given the opportunity to correct it, and then, after that,
go ahead and do what the sponsor of the bill has indicated. I do think we’re all entitled to one mistake.
