Youngsters under the age of 16 would have to wear helmets whenever riding on all-terrain vehicles under a bill approved by a House committee.

The approval came despite scattered complaints that it infringed on property rights.

Supporters said the proposal would save lives and protect youngsters from lifelong brain injuries caused by ATV accidents.

The bill cleared the House Health and Welfare Committee after members refused to amend it to exempt the helmet requirement when youngsters ride on private property.
