Business owners, individuals protected from liability issues.
The state House on Tuesday approved the Severe Weather Liability Bill, protecting business owners and individuals who offer shelter during dangerous weather.
A bill vetoed by Governor Fallin last month only mentioned liability protection for mobile home park owners, but a Senate amendment to this similar bill included all businesses and individuals.
Fallin vetoed the first bill on April 13th, due to legal concerns. Two days later, a massive tornado struck Woodward, killing five people.
Representative John Enns of Enid calls this latest measure a Good Samaritan bill, but Representative Joe Dorman of Rush Springs isn't comfortable with all of it.
"I'm worried that someone could advertise a sign saying, you'll be safe but it's not really safe at all. There's no standard put in place in this bill " Dorman said.
"To me it's an act of God. I don't know if we can say this is going to be safe up to an F-3 or an F-4 tornado," Enns replied.
The bill passed the House 89 to 2 and goes to Governor Fallin for review.
