Oregon Houses Passes Increase on State Liability Caps

As Bend Weekly News reports, the Oregon House passed SB 311, which would raise the current liability cap of $200,000 for government agency defendants.   The new bill raises the cap and sets up a two-tier system depending on whether the suit is against the state or a local government.  As previously noted, the Oregon Senate passed this bill back in February.    The bill now heads to the governor for signature.
