TITLE: CONCERNING A GRANT OF QUALIFIED IMMUNITY TO LICENSED PROFESSIONALS WHO ASSIST IN SECURING THE SAFETY OF STRUCTURES DURING TIMES OF EMERGENCY.
Summary of Assessment
This bill would grant qualified immunity to licensed architects who voluntarily provide architectural services at the scene of a declared disaster or emergency. An architect would not be liable for any personal injury, wrongful death, property damage, or other loss caused by the licensed architect’s acts or omissions in the performance of the architectural services. Immunity would not be provided for gross negligence or willful misconduct. This bill would become effective July 1, 1998 and would apply to all acts committed on or after that date.
The provisions of this bill would not affect the workload or revenue of the Architect Licensing Board in the Division of Registrations, Department of Regulatory Agencies, or any other agency of the state, or unit of local government. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
