Senate Judiciary Committee Chair, Lisa Baker (R-Luzerne), has re-introduced PCCJR supported Covid-19 liability protection legislation (SB 273). This bill will protect manufacturers, health care organizations, and businesses open to the public by shielding them from predatory Covid-19 injury lawsuits. In November 2020, Governor Tom Wolf vetoed a similar bill (HB 1737).
Thanks to the heroic efforts of companies such as Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and others, there is a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel. However, we are not out of Covid-19’s grasp yet, and the plaintiff’s lawyers are anxious to make millions off of well-meaning individuals and businesses who are trying to provide much-needed services and needs. PCCJR commends Sen. Baker and SB 273’s co-sponsors for leading the way!
