OHA Submits Testimony in Support House Liability Bill

In the Ohio House Civil Justice Committee Wednesday, the Ohio Alliance for Civil Justice (on whose board an OHA representative serves) testified in favor of Sub. HB 606, a bill that would provide enhanced liability protection to health care providers and other businesses.

Anne Marie Sferra of Bricker & Eckler LLP testified on OACJ’s behalf and highlighted the deficiencies in the existing statute and the need for additional protections. In addition, OHA submitted written testimony on the bill that is consistent with the testimony provided by OACJ on the health care components of the bill.

Last week OHA testified in support of Sub. SB 308, companion legislation that is currently pending in the Ohio Senate.

OHA will continue to be actively engaged in advocacy with other health care provider organizations and the business community on these important bills.
