Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signs ‘Kile Glover Boat Education Law’
Governor Nathan Deal of Georgia signed a boating safety bill into law, dubbed the “Kile Glover Boat Education Law.” The bill comes after Tameka Raymond and Ryan Glover lost their son Kile Glover in a tragic boating accident last July 4th at Lake Lanier located northwest of Atlanta.
The provisions of the “Kile Glover Boat Education Law” increases the age requirement for wearing a personal flotation device from 10 to 13 years old. It also lowers the blood alcohol content limit for boaters to 0.08, which is the same legal limit for Georgia drivers. The law will go into effect on May 15th.
Tameka Raymond honored the 12th birthday of her son, Kile , with the launch of Kile’s World Foundation at the Woodruff Arts Center in Atlanta.
Shortly after Kile’s passing, Tameka announced the goals of the foundation tweeting, “Our goal is to increase water safety through implementing laws, policies and education. Kiles passing will not be in vain, we will see to this.”
