STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
RS29617 / S1343
This trailer legislation amends the civil causes of action created by Senate Bill 1309 (2022) so that courts
may award attorney's fees and costs to prevailing defendants who complied with the law. It also removes the
subsection relating to affirmative defenses so that lawsuits filed under the civil causes of action would instead
proceed with normal burdens of proof.
There is no anticipated fiscal impact to the State or general fund because it requires no expenditure of State
