A new Informed Consent for Spaceflight Bill has been introduced in Florida, House Bill 737 includes the following proposed warning statement (hat tip to Space Politics):

(b) The warning statement described in paragraph (a) shall contain, at a minimum, the following statement:

“WARNING: Under Florida law, there is no liability for an injury to or death of a participant in a spaceflight activity provided by a spaceflight entity if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of the spaceflight activity. Inherent risks of spaceflight activities include, among others, risks of injury to land, equipment, persons, and animals, as well as the potential for you to act in a negligent manner that may contribute to your injury or death. You are assuming the risk of participating in this spaceflight activity.”
