New Act


Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Movable Soccer Goal Safety Act. Requires any organization that sets up, moves, or stores a movable soccer goal to follow all applicable guidelines for anchoring, securing, and counterweighting a movable soccer goal as those guidelines are set forth in "Guidelines for Movable Soccer Goal Safety", a publication of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Provides that beginning on the effective date of the Act, no commercial dealer, manufacturer, importer, distributor, wholesaler, or retailer may manufacture, re-manufacture, retrofit, distribute, sell at wholesale or retail, contract to sell or resell, lease, or sublet, or otherwise place in the stream of commerce, a movable soccer goal that is not tip-resistant. Requires movable soccer goals with specified measurements to comply with applicable ASTM standards. Provides that a violation of the Act is a petty offense for which a fine not to exceed $500 may be imposed. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with changes. Removes a provision requiring an organization to comply with the "Guidelines for Movable Soccer Goal Safety". Requires instead that an agent or employee of an organization (i) not knowingly cause a movable soccer goal to be unanchored or improperly anchored and (ii) upon being notified of an unanchored or improperly anchored movable soccer goal, ensure that the goal is properly anchored or eliminate the risk that the goal will inadvertently tip over by laying it forward onto its face or otherwise securing it from being used in its unanchored position. Makes the ban on the sale and distribution on goals that are not tip-resistant effective one year after the effective date of the Act (instead of on the effective date of the Act). Removes a provision that made a violation of the Act a petty offense. Requires the Department of Public Health to provide technical assistance materials by June 30, 2012. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 3
Replaces a provision that created a statutory standard of care for the use of movable soccer goals with a provision that requires each organization that owns and controls a movable soccer goal to create a soccer goal safety and education policy.
