  1. well, this is a different case. This smells of one of those laws named after one kid.

    It shouldn’t be a law.

    “He said one person dies because of pool or spa drain suction in a typical year”

    If it saves just (literally) one person….

    any guesses on the unintended consequences?

  2. The expense of the law IS its own unintended consequence. I ran the numbers (and did a post) and the law forces people to spend a _minimum_ of 240 million dollars and will save _maybe_ 30 lives in the next 30 years. Talk about a crappy rate of return.
