HB 375 Modifies provisions relating to the duty of care a landowner owes a person entering without a fee onto the land for recreational use

Current Bill Summary

- Prepared by Senate Research -


HCS/HB 375 - Under current law a land owner owes no duty of care to keep his or her land safe for recreational use to anyone who enters the land without charge. The act modifies the definition of "recreational use" by adding aviation activities, trapping, paddle sports, and swimming. The act specifies that there is not limit liability for any landowner who intentionally injures a participant, provides unsafe equipment, or fails to exercise a degree of care that an ordinary person would under similar circumstances.

These provisions are identical to HCS/SCS/SB 131 (2015) and similar to HCS/HB 263 (2015).
