FWST: Rep. Turner files bill to regulate trampoline parks

A North Texas lawmaker is pushing for legislation to regulate trampoline parks for safety following a Star-Telegram investigation in 2022 that found hundreds of injuries. Rep. Chris Turner, an Arlington Democrat, on Monday filed two bills related to trampoline parks, which are neither inspected nor regulated in Texas. The Star-Telegram investigation published in February 2022 found nearly 500 reports of injuries at 21 trampoline parks in Dallas-Fort Worth since 2015. These were just the injuries that rose to the severity of needing a call for emergency medical treatment.
