BILL NUMBER:  AB 1652
  VETOED	DATE: 09/24/2010




??













To the Members of the California State Assembly:

I am returning Assembly Bill 1652 without my signature.

This bill would make available to the general public a ski resort's
annual safety plan and information on the fatal incidents at the
resort that resulted from recreational activities.  This bill would
also require ski resorts to create their own signage policy regarding
ski area boundaries, closed areas and other skier information.

Many California ski resorts are located on US Forest Service (USFS)
land, and are already required to compile and file safety and
accident reports with USFS as well as maintain some of this
information in the resort management office.  Ski resorts in
California also already mark their ski area boundaries and trails
with appropriate information.  This bill may place an unnecessary
burden on resorts, without assurance of a significant reduction in
ski and snowboard-related injuries and fatalities.

For these reasons, I am unable to sign this bill.

Sincerely,



Arnold Schwarzenegger
