Opinion: Congress Can Help Local Businesses By Passing Liability Protections

Manufacturers across our nation have kept their doors open and supply chains intact during the entirety of the COVID-19 pandemic, but according to an op-ed by John Walsh, the president and CEO of the Michigan Manufacturers Association, they live in fear of costly lawsuits. 

“Unfortunately, liability lawsuits — and even the threat of them — have widespread implications. Because of the costs and resources associated with fighting a lawsuit in court, many small or mid-sized businesses will feel forced to settle, potentially paying large sums of money despite doing nothing wrong.” Walsh writes. “Our representatives in Congress can help local businesses across Michigan by simply ensuring that those who do the right thing aren’t punished.”

Last week, a coalition of more than 500 business organizations sent a letter to Capitol Hill calling on Congress to pass this bill. You can read that letter here.
