Michael D- Glen I thought would take four years only took Wagner credited election-year pol- itics and editorial support with con- vincing the General Assembly to enact the legislation this year. Wagner list year was the prime sponsor of mandatory seat-belt legis- lation that passed the Senate but was killed by the House Judiciary Committee. This year the House committee reversed itself. The Senate earlier this session had passed a more stringent bill. The House amendments exempt historic change the fine from plus court costs to a maximum 925 fine and eliminate any chance that failure to wear a seat belt could be used in court as evidence that a motorist contributed to an accident. The bill requires the driver and the front-seat passenger next to the door to wear belts.

Failure to wear a seat belt will not be a moving sol violators will not get any points their driving records.
