Missouri Senate OKs bill to limit COVID-19 lawsuits

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri senators have passed a bill to shield hospitals, manufacturers and other businesses from lawsuits over alleged wrongdoing during the pandemic.

The GOP-led Senate voted 20-13 in favor of the bill.

The measure now goes to the House for consideration.

Republican Gov. Mike Parson has been pushing lawmakers to pass legislation protecting businesses from lawsuits related to COVID-19.

Supporters say businesses shouldn't be punished for trying to help during the pandemic.

But critics say the measure primarily helps big businesses and would limit people's access to the courts.

  1. “Supporters say businesses shouldn’t be punished for trying to help during the pandemic.”
    They won’t be, unless they are found guilty in a civil court. Shielding any party from liability is an invitation to irresponsible behavior. The Medical establishment knows exactly that their “trying to help” involves a lot of risk, especially regarding the mostly untested for safety and efficacy “vaccine”, which isn’t a vaccine at all, since the makers themselves make no claim it produces immunity. Likewise, since there is ample evidence that masks are useless in preventing transmission, those who suffer from being forced to wear one are entitled to recompense. The CDC’s own past study on their effectiveness preventing transmission of influenza clearly indicates they aren’t effective.
