Bill Summary

Under current law, a landowner that grants access to another person, without charge, to use the landowner's land for recreational purposes, such as hunting, fishing, or camping, is not liable for any injuries the person sustains while using the land; except that a landowner is liable to the person for the landowner's willful and malicious failure to guard or warn against a known dangerous condition, use, structure, or activity on the land likely to cause harm. The bill removes the exception.
