 obviously, our legislators have SOLVED all of our state's problems, and have now moved on to littler, and less important things...

or is this how they occupy their time, wheedling away our rights?

this shows a lack of respect for the citizens, and a mindset that if a citizen gets hurt, it's the GOVERNMENTS JOB to pay for it.

Kill this nanny state bill now.  With all the crap wrong with our state this shouldn't even be on the radar screen.  Needless, unwarranted, meddlesome tripe providing yet another reason for Midwest skiers to look to states other than Michigan.  I'll be the first to pass on skiing in my life long state, having begun at age 4--51 years without incident.  You want a helmet.  Wear one. On YOUR head.
