Recreational Immunity Bill Passes

A bill to restore legal immunity for employees and volunteers who do work on publicly owned properties used for recreation has passed both the Oregon House and Senate and is awaiting Governor Kate Brown’s signature. The bill was in reaction to a recent court decision that found while the government entity that owned the property had immunity from legal action, individuals did not.  52nd District Representative Mark Johnson says the legislation is needed.  However, there has been no progress toward recreational liability reform for private sector businesses.  Johnson says there was no attempt at such a bill this session after efforts during last year’s session found no success.
