"HB 188 amends sections of the Alaska Ski Safety Act that have proven unenforceable."
- Rep. Hawker
"An Act relating to the authority of the Department of Natural Resources to issue citations for certain skiing violations; relating to establishing a bail schedule for certain skiing violations and to procedures for issuing a citation for a skiing violation."
Enacted by the 18th Alaska State Legislature, the Alaska Ski Safety Act defines the rights and responsibilities of both ski areas and skiers. In accordance with the Act, House Bill 188 allows for citations to be issued in ski areas throughout the State and provides the Court with the necessary authority to adopt the bail forfeiture schedule for the violations included in the Statute.
House Bill 188 amends sections of the Alaska Ski Safety Act that have proven unenforceable. The proposed amendments are technical in nature; they clarify the statutes and are consistent with the original provisions of the Alaska Ski Safety Act. These measures will allow for full implementation and improved enforcement of the original Alaska Ski Safety Act.
