News

Missouri senator elect Josh Hawley says he plans to reintroduce Senator Claire Mccaskill’s duck boat legislation in the new Congress.

Hawley released a statement Wednesday saying that McCaskill was right to introduce legislation that would have put in place major recommendations by the National Transportation and Safety Board which would improve the safety of duck boat operations.

Hawley said in his statement that federal agencies and lawmakers need to ensure that future duck boat mishaps such as the one in Branson are prevented.
