Lawmaker: Parade bill would be ‘knee-jerk’ reaction

Published 09/09/2010, The Daily Republic

Kloucek, D- Scotland, recently announced plans to introduce a bill that would require an outrider — a single horse and rider that helps keep a team of horses under control — with every team of two or more horses in a public parade. The announcement came only days after three people suffered injuries when two mules pulling a wagon were spooked and ran into Labor Day parade spectators in Wagner.
