Warren celebrates passage of parks volunteer protections bill

(Dec 15, 2021)

HARRISBURG, Dec. 15 – A bipartisan bill co-authored by state Rep. Perry Warren that would extend limited liability protections to land conservation volunteers has been unanimously passed by the House of Representatives. House Bill 1694 would amend the Recreational Use of Land and Water Act to give volunteers providing services to care for, enhance, preserve or maintain recreational spaces the same protections in lawsuits as the owners of that land. “Nonprofit volunteer organizations do great work in helping with the conservation and restoration of our shared green spaces,” said Warren, D-Bucks. “Extending liability protections to these groups would help them focus on the important work they do in keeping Pennsylvania beautiful.” Warren said two state parks in his district – Delaware Canal State Park and Tyler State Park – inspired him to act in protecting the organizations and individuals providing free services to upkeep the land.
