CARW joined more than 60 business associations, non-profits, and local chambers of commerce which sent a letter to lawmakers on Wednesday asking them to sign on and support legislation that would shield Wisconsin businesses, schools, universities, and other entities from the threat of predatory lawsuits alleging liability for COVID-19 exposures. The bill – LRB-6434/2 – is currently being circulated by Sen. Chris Kapenga (R-Delafield), Rep. Mark Born (R-Beaver Dam), and Rep. Dan Knodl (R-Germantown).
The 60-plus organizations call on the legislature to act quickly to protect businesses, non-profits, and individuals who are doing the right thing while ensuring bad actors could still be held liable.
The full letter can be found here.
