Beach lifeguard rule passes

Email

ST. PAUL - Lifeguards at government-run Minnesota beaches will be required to know CPR and otherwise be certified if Gov. Mark Dayton signs a bill headed his way.

The House Monday voted 110-10 to require that beaches run by governments such as cities hire only certified lifeguards, if they have lifeguards. The law does not require governments to hire lifeguards.

Some Republicans said the bill could lead to more danger.
