Whatever happened to that bill that would have changed the state seat belt law?

The measure was approved in the Senate but defeated in the House. It would have required 4- to 7-year-old children to sit in a booster seat while wearing a seat belt. It also would have allowed law enforcement authorities to stop vehicles if anyone younger than 18 wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Supporters of the bill said it would save lives, but opponents said it was unwanted government intervention.
