LINCOLN--Thursday, May 7 brought long awaited hope for supporters of the
Nebraska Agritourism Promotion Act.
The bill, LB 329, introduced by Sen. Ken Schilz of Ogallala, aims to
encourage people to let others on their land for argitourism purposes and
would limit landowner liability.
After being on the agenda for two weeks, the bill advanced in the
Legislature on a 33-1 vote.
Under the bill, a landowner wouldn't be held liable under certain
situations involving injury or death due to inherent risks, such as
stepping in a hole made by prairie dogs.
