Summary: S.2681 — 107th Congress (2001-2002)All Information (Except Text)
Christen O'Donnell Equestrian Helmet Safety Act of 2002 - Mandates that equestrian helmets manufactured nine months or more after the date of the enactment of this Act shall conform to certain interim standards of safety, and, ultimately, to final standards promulgated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Introduced in Senate (06/26/2002)
Instructs the CPSC to establish final standards for equestrian helmet safety that are based upon specified interim standards devised by the American Society for Testing and Materials, and that include: (1) protection against the risk of helmets coming off the heads of equestrian riders; and (2) provisions that address the risk of injury to children.
States that failure to meet the interim equestrian helmet standard until the final standard takes effect shall be considered in violation of a consumer product safety standard promulgated under the Consumer Product Safety Act.
