S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 797 2011-2012 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E (PREFILED) January 5, 2011 ___________ Introduced by Sens. YOUNG, BONACIC, JOHNSON, RANZENHOFER -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Insurance AN ACT to direct the superintendent of insurance to study the feasibil- ity of developing and implementing a liability reform plan for private landowners who provide public access to their lands for various recre- ational activities; and providing for the repeal of such provisions upon expiration thereof THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative intent. Private land owners are potentially exposed to extensive civil liabilities for providing public access to their lands for recreational opportunities. Therefore, it is increasing- ly difficult to negotiate recreational opportunities that traverse private land. However, if private landowners were insulated from civil liabilities when opening up parts of their property for public recre- ational activities, such activities would increase. S 2. The superintendent of insurance shall study the feasibility of developing and implementing a liability reform plan for private land owners who provide the public with access to their lands for various recreational activities including, but not limited to, hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, mountain biking and operating all terrain vehicles. Such study shall include any relevant information which shall further the intent of this act. S 3. A report of the findings of such study, recommendations of the superintendent of insurance and any proposed legislation necessary to implement such findings shall be filed with the governor, the temporary president of the senate, the speaker of the assembly, the minority lead- er of the senate and the minority leader of the assembly within one year after the effective date of this act. S 4. This act shall take effect immediately and shall expire and be deemed repealed one year after such date.
