Sen. John Barrasso Urges Congress To Include Liability Protection In Future COVID Legislation

Yesterday, U.S. Senator John Barrasso (R-WY) spoke on the Senate floor about the need for Congress to pass liability protections to help America safely reopen as soon as possible.

“As we look to the future in terms of recovery legislation – what we need to do is to prevent a second epidemic. And I have great concern that the second epidemic will be that of frivolous coronavirus lawsuits,” Barrasso said on the Senate floor. “Any future legislation must focus on the virus and must include reasonable liability protections for the hard-hit health care workers and for American employers. Opportunistic trial lawyers are already advertising and they are targeting the same health care workers and the same small businesses that we have assisted during the crisis.”
