 Tell Congress that Essential Businesses Need Liability Protection
 
ILMA, NAM and other business organizations continue to request that Congress pass legislation that provides safe harbor liability for businesses which have grappled with rapidly evolving federal, state and local rules, and could become the target of coronavirus-related lawsuits. These lawsuits, even when baseless, can hamper the rebuilding and reopening of the country, and further stress the businesses that kept the country running.

To date, no legislation has been passed and it has become an urgent matter to get this done to protect your business. Congress is now in August recess and your representatives are likely at home in your district. This makes it a perfect time for you to personally contact them and urge them to act on essential liability protection when they return to Washington, D.C. on September 8.

These call talking points can be very helpful, as well as a sample letter you could tailor to your voice and send to your representatives. Please support our industry by calling your representatives now, before they return to the Hill in September!
