From the SacBee "Bill requiring helmets on slope 1 step from Brown":
Skiers and snowboarders younger than 18 would have to wear a helmet on the slopes under a bill that has passed the state Assembly.The fine for not wearing a helmet will be $25.00.
The bill was approved Monday on a 49-23, party-line vote. Several Republican lawmakers called the legislation another example of overly protective "nanny state" regulations.
Editor's comment - How times have changed. Remember the '70s. Jerry Brown was a hip Democrat; legalizing weed, hanging out with rock stars, dating Linda Ronstadt. Now, he's about to become the ultimate Nanny-State nerd.
