Mountaineer Navy Good Samaritan Act
A Louisiana State Senator has proposed a bill that would require a group of Louisiana volunteers, the Cajun Navy, be required to get permits before helping rescue efforts in Louisiana flooding. This could have led to massive loss of life had those people not pitched in during the time of greatest need while government resources were overwhelmed. This is not a good idea.
Having just experienced deadly flooding here in West Virginia many people were rescued by Good Samaritans. I want to make sure that the Good Samaritans of the Mountaineer Navy are simply covered by our Good Samaritan Law. I have instructed legislative council to take a look our current Good Samaritan Law to see if it currently covers this situation. If not, then I want to make the changes to make sure the Mountaineer Navy can immediately mobilize without a permit to save lives under our Good Samaritan Law.Now I know why I follow him.
ADDENDUM: The lawmaker seeking to regulate this ad hoc "navy" is Republican State Senator Jonathan "J.P." Perry of the Vermilion-Lafayette area in Louisiana.
