Synopsis As Introduced Creates the Reducing the Risk of Skin Cancer and Excessive UV Exposure in Children Act. Provides that a student or participant in a youth camp may possess and use a topical sunscreen product while on school property or at a school-sponsored event or activity or youth camp without a physician's note or prescription if certain conditions are met. Provides that a school district or youth camp shall allow a student or participant to use articles of sun-protective clothing outdoors. Provides that, beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, all schools districts shall incorporate in their curriculum a unit of instruction on skin cancer prevention. Effective immediately.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Provides that a school district may (rather than shall) incorporate in its curriculum a unit of instruction on skin cancer prevention.
House Floor Amendment No. 2 Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill as amended by House Amendment No. 1 with the following changes. Defines "school personnel". Provides that, except for willful or wanton misconduct, school personnel (rather than school or youth camp personnel) may not be held liable in a criminal or civil action for application of a topical sunscreen product if the topical sunscreen product is available to and used by the student (rather than student or camp participant) in accordance with the Act. Effective immediately.
