Current Bill Summary

SB 50 - This act prohibits a private campground owner or employee or officer of a private campground owner from being liable for acts related to camping at a private campground if the injury or damage occurred as a result of an inherent risk of camping, as described within the act. This act does not apply to actions arising under Missouri Workers' Compensation Law. Additionally, this act does not prevent or limit liability of an owner, employee, or officer who intentionally causes injury, death, or damage, who acts with a willful or wanton disregard for the safety of the person or property damaged, who fails to use the degree of care that an ordinarily careful and prudent person would use under the circumstances, or who fails to conspicuously post warning signs of known dangerous conditions on the property. Warning signs are required to appear in black letters of at least one inch in height on a white background. Warning signs and written contracts entered into by an owner, employee, or officer shall contain a warning notice, as specified in the act.

This act is identical to SCS/SB 783 (2020) and is similar to HA#5 to HCS/SCS/SB 662 (2020), HB 1302 (2020), and HB 398 (2019).
