NDPA Urges Passage of Historic Pool Bill
Date:10/12/2007

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- History will be written if the U.S. Senate approves the proposed Pool and Spa Safety Act during a vote scheduled for next week. It will be the first time Congress has ever approved a law regarding swimming pool and spa safety. The National Drowning Prevention Alliance (NDPA) is encouraging senators to pass the bill, but with wording similar to HR 1721 passed on October 10.

"It signifies that the American public cares about water safety, which has been the focus of the NDPA since its inception in 2004," said Johnson. "The bill supports efforts to show individuals, on a broad scale, the proper way to keep children safer around their home pools.

"Any law that promotes safer pools is a good law," said Johnson. "We work very hard every day to p
