Landowner liability bill signed into law by Idaho governor

Legislation to protect private landowners who allow the public on their land from liability under Idaho’s recreational immunity statute has been signed into law.

Idaho Gov. Brad Little late last week signed the legislation that clarifies the state’s recreational immunity statute applies to private landowners.

Some state programs allow landowners to receive money to offset costs associated with opening their private property to the public.

State officials say that an Idaho Supreme Court ruling and a 2018 law mean government entities entering into agreements with nominal fees to the public are protected from liability under the recreational immunity statute.

The legislation signed by Little clarifies that the protections also apply to private landowners.
