Sen. Cornyn drafting proposal to protect businesses from COVID-19 related lawsuits

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Senator John Cornyn is working on a proposal to protect businesses from lawsuits originating from COVID-19 response.

He says it would protect companies from frivolous claims that could slow down economic recovery.

During a town hall with the Republican Party of Texas, the senator explained the threat of a lawsuit could keep a business from reopening. As supporters of these efforts, he cites hospitals, hotels, restaurants and retailers.

Senator Cornyn says it would be a safe harbor for businesses following public health guidelines.

Senator Cornyn says one of his partner agencies working on this bill is already defending 140 businesses in COVID-19 lawsuits. He said there's more than 1,000 of them already nationwide.
