SB 442 Signed into Law

Great news!!   California Governor Brown signed the state pool barrier bill SB 442 Authored by Senator Josh Newson and Co-Authored by Nancy Skinner.

The cosponsors of SB 442 was the Drowning Prevention Foundation and the California Coalition for Children’s Safety & Health.

State of California not only first to pass a fencing law internationally in (Contra Costa County) initiated by DPF founder Nadina Riggsbee, first to pass state bill AB3305, supported by many Drowning Prevention advocates throughout the state, and now again first and only state in the US to have a double product barrier law.  A major part of the new law is when home is sold and does not have two barriers protecting small children from drowning in backyard pools they are considered defective!
