Impact of Oregon expansion of liability



In 2009, Oregon Senate Bill 311 increased state agency liability caps from $500,000 to $3.2 million, and the cap will increase to $4 million by 2015. "In response, groups holding public events on state property are being required to carry more insurance and the increase is more than some groups can handle." The tripling of insurance rates may cause the annual Labor Day Civil War reenactment to be canceled in future years. [Daily Astorian via R.L.; earlier]
