California Puts Another Lid On The Kids

by The Editors on June 2, 2010

Yesterday, (Tuesday, June 1, 2010) the California State Senate approved Senate Bill 880 which would require everyone under 18 to wear helmets while snowboarding or skiing, according to a story in the Fresno Bee.

Senate Bill 880 by Sen. Leland Yee, D-San Francisco, was approved by a 21-13 vote, mostly along party lines. . . Sen. Dave Cox, R-Fair Oaks, split with most of his Republican colleagues and voted for the bill. Yee gave Cox a helmet to thank him for the vote.

Apparently, resorts are not required to enforce the new law, but local law enforcement will with $25 fines to parents who allow their kids to ride without helmets. One more reason to be an outlaw. The bill still has to clear the State Assembly before being signed into law by Mr. Schwarzenegger.
