Wednesday, Larry Kudlow, President Trump’s Top economic adviser said The Administration will look at limiting liability for businesses over the spread of the coronavirus.
“I think liability reforms and safeguards are going to be a very important part of this,” Larry Kudlow, director of the White House’s National Economic Council, said in a TV interview Wednesday morning.
“That’s a very important point here, somebody’s got to defend the businesses.”
President Trump has indicated that his Administration is looking to limit liability in cases where workers, or possibly customers, fall ill from the virus.
“We have tried to take liability away from these companies,” the President said Monday at a White House news conference. He added that he would seek a legal opinion on the matter but said details of an approach had not yet been discussed.
Speaking to the MSM Wednesday, Mr. Kudlow described the potential measure as a “guardrail,” particularly aimed at small businesses.
“That is very important here regarding safeguarding, guard-railing liability insurance lawsuits, which I am quite concerned about,” he said. “Businesses, particularly small business that don’t have massive resources, should not be held liable, should not be held to trial lawyers putting on false lawsuits that will probably be thrown out of court.”
Mr. Kudlow said there will be constant monitoring of The China Virus, although President Trump has said it is up to states to take the lead on testing. Governors have repeatedly sounded the alarm that the US continues to face a widespread shortfall of testing and testing supplies.
Making and Keeping America Great!
