Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill into law this week that gives the state the power to closely regulate its trampoline parks.
“The regulation of trampoline courts is of statewide concern,” states the Arizona Department of Fire, Building, and Life Safety document that explains the law.
Arizona is the first state to regulate the parks.
The inspection standards will be based on guidelines drafted by the American Society of Testing and Materials, an international organization.
Brewer signed the legislation, House Bill 2179, at the state capitol on Thursday. The parks have 90 days to comply. Courts that do not meet the standards will not be allowed to operate until they do.
