To be voted on in third special session
Legislative Concept 2330
will likely soon be voted on in the third special session of the 2020 Oregon legislature. Insiders say it will be declared a "Catastrophic Special Session" by Governor Kate Brown.
The bill intends to limit the liability of school districts, public charter schools, education service districts and community colleges for certain claims arising during COVID-19 emergency period.
The Emergency Clause would be attached to the bill upon it's passage, rendering it effective immediately.
The bill also provides that a person engaged in activities on school district property that are not operated by a school district may not bring a claim against the school district for damages related to COVID-19 infection.
This legislation seems to indicate and clear the way for schools potentially reopening in Oregon.
Language in LC 2330 points out that the immunity provided by this does not apply to reckless, wanton or intentional misconduct.
