Senator Sachs introduced a bill to prevent children from dying of heat exposure when forgotten in the back of a motor vehicle. Senate Bill 274 would have required that child care centers have alarms placed in their motor vehicles. The alarm forces the driver of the van to go into the back of the vehicle – where hiding children will be discovered – to turn the alarm off.

SB 274 Maria Sachs Protecting Kids

This upcoming session, Senator Sachs will be introducing bills that ban texting while driving and add much needed regulations to the parasailing industry. These bills, like the Good Samaritan bill, are in response to actual child or teen deaths throughout Florida. No child should die when a simple law is all that is needed to prevent it.
