SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (KMOX) - Gov. Pat Quinn has signed several laws aimed at increasing boater safety.

The Chicago Democrat signed the three measures at a ceremony on the shores of Lake Michigan over the weekend.

The new measures apply statewide and require safety courses, create rules for towing people on water tubes or skis and impose stricter boater drunk driving penalties.

All the laws take effect next year.
