Parks, recreation and historic preservation (PAR)
§ 13.30 Reimbursement for expenditures necessitated by negligent, willful or reckless conduct. In addition to any other remedy which may exist, a person whose negligent, willful or reckless conduct results in an expenditure by the office for the purpose of effectuating a rescue shall be liable for the amount of such expenditure and shall reimburse the office therefor. The attorney general may institute any proper action, suit or proceeding to recover the amount owed to the office as provided in this section and any such amount so recovered shall be deposited in the state treasury to the credit of the general fund. For purposes of this section, reckless conduct shall mean a failure to exercise reasonable care, reasonable caution or the foresight of a reasonably prudent and careful person, with a deliberate disregard for the consequences of such conduct.
