SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - California lawmakers have jumped in to regulate trampoline centers in the wake of at least one death.

U-T San Diego says a state Senate committee on Wednesday approved a measure requiring centers to comply with safety regulations similar to those for amusement park rides. Those safeguards include insurance, employee training and inspections.

If the bill is signed into law, California would become the first state in the nation to regular trampoline centers, which have been growing in popularity.

The bill was promoted by a Coronado woman, Maureen Kerley. Her 30-year-old son, Ty Thomasson, died last year in a freak accident at a trampoline center in Phoenix.
