Governor Brown has vetoed the Ski Helmet bill. In his veto message, the Governor states:
While I appreciate the value of wearing a ski helmet, I am concerned about the continuing and seemingly inexorable transfer of authority from parents to the state. Not every human problem deserves a law.
Predictably, supporters shot back:
Brown “chose to ignore the scientific evidence (and) the ski industry’s support.”
In fact, the scientific data casts doubt on the effectiveness of ski helmets.
