Oregon’s Liability Waiver Standard is
EXTREME AND OUT OF BALANCE
Recent court rulings have effectively nullified Oregon liability waivers, impacting the accessibility and affordability of recreation and fitness for people across our state. Oregon businesses are now paying significantly more for liability insurance than other western states. As a result, recreation and fitness providers are forced to either increase consumer costs or eliminate recreation options altogether. This will have a devastating effect on small businesses, rural communities and recreationists throughout the state. Without waiver reform, Oregon risks losing the tremendous societal and economic benefits recreation and fitness provide.
To level the playing field with other states and preserve recreational opportunities, Oregon needs to re-align with the same balanced standard that exists in every other western state.
