WMC Backs Plan Preventing Businesses Being Sued Due To COVID-19

Wisconsin’s largest business lobby is 100-percent behind a plan to prevent businesses from being sued over the coronavirus. Wisconsin Manufacturers and Commerce says a bill in the legislature to protect businesses, non-profits, schools, and others from coronavirus lawsuits is common sense. The proposed legislation would exempt businesses and others from lawsuits, as long as they abide by local coronavirus safety rules and best practices. It could be a while before the legislation goes anywhere. Lawmakers in Madison are done with business for the year.
