PaOHVís long sought, common sense amendment to the Recreational Use of Land and Water Act passed the House Tourism and Recreational Development Committee. The party line vote was 16-9.

The RULWA amendments reform the landowner liability laws to encourage landowners to open their properties for recreational use. The liability standards remain largely the same with the exception that legal costs including attorneyís fees will be paid by the losing party in litigation. This is a significant deterrent from bringing frivolous suits.

The language of HB 544 is the same that passed the House with only two negative votes last session. Yet today, the bill garnered 9 votes against it from many of the same people who voted for the bill last year. Politics is alive and well in Harrisburg.

The bill now advances to the full house for consideration.
