Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1229 -- Paddlesport Activities

Sponsor:  Cunningham (145)

This bill gives immunity to outfitters of paddlesport activities
for injuries or death to participants due to the inherent risks
of paddlesport activities.  Outfitters are not immune from
liability arising out of an employer-employee relationship.
Outfitters are also not immune from liability when an outfitter
acts intentionally or negligently, provides unsafe equipment or
watercraft, fails to provide a personal flotation device, or
fails to exercise ordinary care.  All outfitters must post and
maintain a warning in a clearly visible location and must include
the warning in all contracts with participants.
