Kill switch question

I have a 2000 40 hp Johnson motor that I bought on craigslist out of state. Have it registered in Texas. I did not come with a kill switch. There is a symbol of a kill switch on the control box front but it does not have a kill switch. How does one find out if is exempted by the new kill switch law. Also, how much will it cost to get one installed. Thanks in
Advance.

From what I read the law applies to when your BOAT was manufactured, not the engine. So if your boat did not come with a kill switch, you don’t need a kill switch.

How this gets enforced....who knows.

most small engines have had "kill switches" for many years. they are usually pretty easy to add AND if you ever need it one time, you will be glad to have it.

a 2000 model control has a key switch that a tether will attach to, it clips on. The motor will start and run without it, but when the tether is on it correctly it turns the key off if you leave the drivers station.
