To remove certain restrictions on a person who successfully sues the state also collecting “costs and fees” in addition to any court-ordered damage awards, with some exceptions. Under current law, the winning plaintiff must prove a state agency's position was "frivolous" to collect costs and fees. The bill would instead require the state provide clear and convincing evidence that its position was justifiable. It would eliminate a provision that than prohibits these damage awards if the plaintiff's net worth exceeds $500,000, own a business worth more than $3.0 million, or employs more than 250 people. The House added other unrelated provisions dealing with conflicts involving electric utility cooperatives, foreclosing mortgages "by advertisement" and more.
