IIAT Joins Top Associations in Supporting Pandemic Liability Protection Act

IIAT joined dozens of other associations in sponsoring a letter sent by the Texas Civil Justice League to Texas House Committee members, urging them to place SB 6, the Pandemic Liability Protection Act, before the House as soon as possible.

SB 6 protects health care providers, first responders, businesses, schools, and houses of worship from a potential wave of COVID-19 related lawsuits. More than 700 such lawsuits have been filed in Texas since March 13, 2020, the date on which the President and Governor declared a pandemic emergency.

The bill has the overwhelming support of hundreds of trade, business, and professional associations, individual businesses, health care providers, educational institutions, and others who have been on the front lines of pandemic response.

SB 6 seeks to stem the tide by establishing common sense liability protections for Texans who in good faith have been doing their best to comply with appropriate health and safety guidelines. The bill does not, however, protect bad actors who intentionally or with gross negligence put other Texans in harm’s way.

Learn more about SB 6 and read the letter.
