(b) The commissioner of public safety is authorized to approve or disapprove protective headgear for moped operators and to issue and enforce regulations establishing standards and specifications for the approval thereof.  He or she shall publish in print or electronically lists by name and type of all protective headgear which have been approved by him or her.
