From the Times-Picayune: "The [Louisiana] Senate voted 36-1 today to protect health-care providers and their employees from certain civil lawsuits related to their work in hurricane or other emergency evacuations. Senate Bill 106 by Sen. Sherry Cheek, R-Shreveport, would leave open civil lawsuits against the responders, volunteers and emergency personnel only in the cases of 'gross negligence' or 'willful misconduct.'"
