Why is SB 994 Important to you?
- Senate Biill 994 will help keep public skateparks in California open,
and help build new ones.
- SB 994 will update California's skateboarding-related liability laws that
will secure the future of public city-owned skateparks.
"Legislation SB 1296, which passed in 1997, made the construction of
all public city-owned Skatepark you see around you possible by officially
listing skateboarding as a hazardous recreational activity and freeing cities
of liability. Legislation SB 1296 expires (because of a sunset clause so
legislators could test the law) on December 31, 2002. This means that public
city-owned Skatepark could start closing. New Legislation SB 994-introduced
by Senator Bill Morrow to permanently update California's skateboarding-related
liability laws- is now on the calendar and needs all the help it can get
to be passed before SB 1296 expires at the end of this year. We skaters
are now called upon-as never before-to coordinate our lobbying efforts in
demonstrating to California legislators the importance of keeping public
city-owned skateparks open." |
The Good News!
SB994 has passed through the first stages of acceptance and is now on the
Senate Judiciary Committee roster. Once they pass it, it will go on to the
full Senate for a vote. After that there's a couple of more stops before
it becomes law, but it's important for us to show support every step of
the way.
What can you do?
- Contact the Judiciary Committee (see Below) to express your support of
SB994
- Contact your local city council, your mayor and especially your Senator
in writing to express how important it is to have a legal place to skate.
(For a list of Senators for your district, look in your phone book or contact
us.)
- Contact Sen. Bill Morrow to let him know you are in support of SB994
- Go to city council meetings
- Get involved with your local Skatepark- help keep it clean and running.
- Get other skaters to get involved.
- Keep Skating!
