AN ACT relating to boating safety.
Create a new section of KRS Chapter 235 to require the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources to design a flag to be raised by boaters in the event of an onboard medical emergency; require the flag to be available for immediate purchase or for order and later delivery at each place where a fishing license is sold; allow the department to charge an amount reasonably calculated to recover the costs it incurs in producing and providing the flag; specify that the department shall not require use of the flag but shall encourage its use; allow the design of the flag to be the same as an existing nationally or internationally recognized flag that is only flown in the event of an onboard medical emergency.
