Governor Of California Signs New Bill In To Law in The Wake Of The Berkeley Tragedy.

: 09/19/2018 - 13:13

The governor of California has signed a bill into law to allow inspections of apartment balconies following the Berkeley tragedy that killed 6 students in 2015.

5 Irish J1 students and one of their cousins died at a 21st birthday party when the fifth floor balcony they were standing on collapsed - 7 others were seriously injured.

An investigation later found that the balcony had become infested with dry rot.

Under the new law, balconies and external decks must be inspected every 6 years.
