Legislation to re-enact the provisions of the Fair Share Act moves out of committee
This week, HB 1 moved to the House floor for consideration. We hope you will join us again in contacting legislators to ask for a YES vote on HB 1, without amendments.
Passage of HB 1 will take a critical step toward creating a civil justice system in the Commonwealth that is fair to both plaintiffs and defendants, and one that holds parties responsible only for the harm they cause. By following 40 other states and enacting joint and several liability reform – known as the Fair Share Act – Pennsylvania can return fairness and balance to our legal system and create a more competitive environment where companies will choose to locate and expand.
