BIC supports legislation to provide business liability protection from COVID-19 related lawsuits.
- Businesses struggling to stay open or reopen in the midst of the pandemic potentially face coronavirus-related liability from a number of different sources, including their own employees and customers. This legislation should provide business liability protection from COVID-19-related lawsuits.
BIC supports efforts to amend the West Virginia constitution to address regressive tax policy, like the business inventory and machinery tax.
- If there is not legislation eliminating the business inventory tax, the Legislature should consider legislation to allow a referendum vote on changing the state constitution to deal with such issues.
