SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- Governor Jerry Brown is set to sign a bill into law that would require skiers and snowboarders under the age of 18 to wear helmets.

It allows the police to fine parents up to $25 if their kids ski or board without a helmet.
The bill is designed to reduce the number of head injuries at ski resorts.
