ND House votes to end spotter requirement for water skiing

BISMARCK, N.D. (GPN) – North Dakota law says someone who’s towing a water skier must have a spotter seated alongside to watch how the water skier is doing. The North Dakota House on Friday approved getting rid of the spotter requirement. The proposed law says a boater or Jet Skiier only needs to use mirrors to keep track of someone who’s being pulled. House members voted 78-9 on Friday to approve the change. It now goes to the North Dakota Senate.
