NY attempts to ban synthetic turf


Recommended Posts

So I was reading the article in the TUseless about Clifton Park's plans to put down fieldturf on their football field and how they had a contingency in place to install new grass in the event that the NY ban on synthetic turf is passed.


I had to read it twice, because I had never heard of that.



So here it is. A NY assemblyman has proposed a bill to ban synthetic turf (meaning the new kind, commonly referred to as fieldturf). Apparently the ground up tires which act as the cushioning on these fields has failed a toxicity test.




I think its pretty ridiculous and unlikely to pass, but could you imagine the cost implications a ban like this would have. Would it require field to be torn up? Talk about major lawsuits. $1,000,000+ right out the window.
