SB 24, introduced by Senator Liz Brown, takes to heart the “Wear Sunscreen” speech. It requires students to do one thing every day that scares them, to be kind to their knees, to live in New York City once but leave before it makes them hard, and to live in California once but to leave before it makes them soft.
Well, not really. But, with respect to the sunscreen, it says that students may possess sunscreen at school and that schools may assist students with application of sunscreen provided they have the parents’ permission. It also gives schools civil immunity for actions they take complying with this legislation.
Personal note: If I ever win a case with a sunscreen immunity defense, I’ll consider it my best day as a lawyer.
