License the Cajun Navy?

Cajun Navy 2A Louisiana legislator this week proposed legislation that would require training and license registration for volunteer rescuers such as the “Cajun Navy,” an impromptu fleet of small-boat owners that mobilized to rescue stranded flood victims during the this month’s devastating floods in Baton Rouge.  The proposal has prompted an angry reaction from some members of the group, who oppose regulation.
