This should be the easiest vote of the session...
SB 1336: Exempts a manufacturer from liability for punitive damages if the manufacturer follows federal, state or agency-issued product standards.
So let me get this straight. If you follow all the rules when you manufacture a product, you can still be held liable for any harm caused by the product, but under this bill, you can't be PUNISHED for the harm done by the product? How is that not fair? After all, "punishment" is for bad behavior. Following all the federal, state and local rules should be an an absolute defence against claims of bad behavior.
Believe it or not, this bill is actually controversial. Since the Democratic Party is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Trial Lawyers and a hand full of Republicans are feeling squishy, there's a chance that this bill may not make it out of the Senate.
