H.E.A. 1115, P.L. 29
Effective: July 1, 2018

Specifies that with respect to the statute that restricts a landowner’s liability for an injury to a person or property caused by an act or failure to act of another person using the landowner’s premises for certain recreational purposes, those purposes include another person going on or through the premises for the purpose of accessing a trail, a greenway, a park, or another similar area used for recreational purposes. Makes a technical change to include in the statute that lists Indiana Code provisions that: (1) are outside the Indiana Code title concerning civil law and procedure; and (2) confer immunity; the statute that provides immunity to owners of land used by persons for hunting, fishing, or trapping.
