The California Special Districts Association has issued a “Call to Action” regarding SB 885. If enacted, the legislation would further limit design professionals’ liability when providing services to public agencies. Specifically, SB 885 would limit design professionals’ duty to defend public agencies.
For purposes of SB 885 a design professional includes a licensed architect, licensed landscape architect, licensed land surveyor, registered professional engineer, and businesses offering any of these services provided by these types of design professionals.
More information on the legislation and ways to make your opinions heard can be found on the CSDA page here.
