Senate Roll Call 779 on
2015 House Bill 4686: Revise city sidewalk liability

Passed 22 to 15 in the Senate on December 14, 2016.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To establish that a municipality being sued for an injury related to a sidewalk “discontinuity” may any use any common law defense available to regular people, including that the condition was “open and obvious.” Current law limits local government defenses in these suits (for example, having to show that a "vertical discontinuity" was less than two inches).
