Dock Regulations In The Ozarks Should Be Done Without Favoritism
It is hard to imagine a more terrible death than being electrocuted while drowning. Last summer, three people were electrocuted while swimming in the Lake of the Ozarks due to faulty electrical systems on docks. A child in Tennessee also was killed in the same manner. In response to these tragedies, there have been calls to institute and expand dock electrical inspection programs in Missouri. I think that dock inspections should be expanded in Missouri, particularly in tourist areas such as Lake of the Ozarks. However, it is imperative to establish the program in a manner that does not allow it to become a monopoly for a select group of inspectors.
