Bill Summary

Contracts - liability - indemnification clauses - snow removal and ice control services contracts. The act creates the "Snow Removal Service Liability Limitation Act". The act applies when a snow and ice removal service provider is prohibited, by express contract terms or in writing, from mitigating a snow, ice, or other mixed precipitation risk and makes void provisions of snow removal agreements that require one party to indemnify the other party for damages, hold the other party harmless for damages, and provide for the defense of the other party in a liability lawsuit.

The act does not apply to snow removal contracts with public bodies and public utilities; services provided on public roads; deicing or ice control services provided at airports; and an insurance policy, as surety bond, or workers' compensation.
