Mary Richards, KSL Newsradio A new bill would keep certain Halloween venues safe from some lawsuits in Utah.
Corn mazes, pumpkin patches and hayrides are becoming more of a treat this time of year, and Rep. Michael Morley wants to keep them safe from any tricks from the public.
"In extending a little protection to those that operate these kinds of activities to keep them from being sued for natural hazards that may exist in those kinds of settings," he said.
Morley says the Utah ski industry has liability protection. This bill would define agri-tourism, hopefully helping farmers and ranchers who make a little Halloween money off their land.
