COVID Liability ProtectionsJuly 26, 2021
Last week, Governor Abbott signed SB 6 into law which I was pleased to author with my friend and colleague, Senator Kelly Hancock. SB 6 will provide strong COVID liability protections for business owners, non-profits, schools, churches and doctors and hospitals, all of whom went above and beyond to protect their customers, patrons, patients and students during the pandemic. However, the same people who in their good faith provided care to us are also subject to the possibility of frivolous and costly lawsuits.
I’m grateful for the support of my legislative colleagues and even more grateful for the wonderful advocates, citizens and stakeholders who locked arms with us to get this important measure passed. Texas is stronger as a result.
