SB 1025
SB 1025: public entities; absolute immunity; defenses
(Click for bill language and additional information)

Sponsor: Sen. Burges

Summary: SB1025 would extend that immunity to cover all other transportation facilities (highways, roads, bridges, streets, etc.) but still allows a public entity or employee to be liable where there is gross negligence in providing reasonably adequate warning of any unreasonably dangerous hazards. The bill would provide these same protections to local governments.

League Position: SUPPORT - The League supports affording these protections to local governments.
