Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Recreational Use of Land and Water Areas Act. Provides that the definition of "land", excludes a dwelling and the property immediately adjacent to and surrounding such dwelling that is primarily used for activities associated with the occupancy of the dwelling as a living space (instead of excluding residential buildings or residential property). In the definition of "recreational or conservation purpose": adds "any recreational pursuit or activity engaged in for the purpose of exercise, relaxation, sport, pleasure, or education"; and deletes "any activity solely related to hunting or recreational shooting". Provides that a "charge" for permission to go upon the land means an admission fee designed to return a profit (instead of an admission fee). Adds that a "charge" does not include a nominal fee requested by the owner for the purpose of defraying the cost of maintaining the land. Provides that the Act does not limit any liability which otherwise exists for an injury on the land if the owner requests a nominal fee for purposes of maintaining the land. Makes other changes.
