Similar laws have already been enacted in other states, including in neighboring Ohio
“We are encouraged by Rep. Gleim’s leadership on this issue,” said Pennsylvania State Grange President Wayne Campbell. “Family Farms, particularly struggling Pennsylvania dairy farmers, are looking for ways to diversify their operation in order to survive. One option is to have other activities which could range from pick-your-own fruit to corn mazes. Too often, fear of a frivolous lawsuit discourages them from doing so.”
Similar laws have already been enacted in other states, including neighboring Ohio. Although having 33 co-sponsors, Rep. Gleim has not yet formally introduced this legislation since additional House members are asking to co-sponsor her bill.
The meeting with Rep. Gleim was part of the Pennsylvania State Grange Day on the Hill where Grange members met with representatives, senators and staff on a number of issues which included this need for liability protection.
