Recreational facility immunity

The Senate Civil Law Committee heard HB 1045, sponsored by Sen. Ford, creating recreational facility immunity. This bill specifies the duties and responsibilities of the users and the operator of a recreational facility operated by an elementary, secondary, or postsecondary educational institution. It also specifies that the operator of such a recreational facility who fulfills the operator’s duties and responsibilities has a complete defense to a civil action. The bill was amended to clarify the definition of “recreational user” and limit the immunity to those using the facility for its primary purpose. The amended bill passed 7-0.
