Child safety seat bill moving

Email

ST. PAUL - Minnesota children younger than 8 must be buckled in a booster seat or other restraint if a preliminarily Senate-passed bill becomes law.

Senators initially approved the proposal on a voice vote Monday, with final approval expected Thursday.

Current law requires children younger than 4 to be in a child's seat. Booster and other safety seats save injuries and money, supporters said.
