Volunteer Ed Adrian Argues for Shared Use Legislation

by Tina Z. on Tuesday, January 28, 2014

Burlington Attorney Ed Adrian rallied behind the American Heart Association's effort to pass legislation providing schools with greater liability protection to open their buildings to the community for recreational purposes. Ed testified before the House Education Committee this month telling committee members its not unusual for Vermont to pass legislation providing immunity to a certain group when it benefits the greater good, especially for health. He noted that while some schools may incur costs related to increased use of their facilities, Vermonters overall could benefit from decreased health care spending as we reduce reduce obesity rates via increased physical activity.
