Bill Summary: This measure changes the definition of public swimming pool to exclude an inflated mobile structure, basin, chamber, or tank; a swim pond; or an individual therapeutic pod, tub, or bath. Under current law, the Department of Safety and Professional Services (DSPS) must review and approve any plans for the construction, alteration, or reconstruction of a public swimming pool, and no one may maintain, manage, or operate a public swimming pool unless DSPS has approved the plans and the public swimming pool conforms to those plans.

Status:  SB 749 - Laid on table, refer to AB 905.AB 905 – Signed by Governor Scott Walker (R) April 17.
