MADISON, WI—Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) today issued a statement following the Wisconsin Assembly and Senate’s passage of January 2021 Special Session Senate Bill 1. The grassroots organization supported the amended version of the bill that included liability protections for businesses, nonprofits, schools, and others.
AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott issued the following statement:
“We applaud the swift actions of the Legislature to pass important liability protections. By ensuring businesses, nonprofits, schools and universities, and other entities have the certainty they need to innovate and remain open safely—without fear of frivolous lawsuits—we can help Wisconsin get back on track and recover stronger. Now, it’s time for Governor Evers to follow the Legislature’s leadership and sign this pivotal reform into law.”
Earlier this month, AFP-WI announced its support for Assembly Bill 1 reforms that included liability protections for businesses, nonprofits, schools, and universities to remain open safely.
