Colorado Helmet Bill Update 03/30/2007

As of last night HB 1117 was still in the Appropriations Committee and at a stalemate.  5 for and 5 against.

Keep calling and getting everyone that you can think of to help and get this misguided bill set packing.

More children are injured while wearing helmets than without.  Most helmets are ill fitted and pose a greater risk to the child than if they had not had a helmet on!  Parents can best judge the actual risk of the activity that the child is engaged in and properly outfit them to minimize any risk that may be associated with the activity.
