SANTA FE, N.M. (KRQE) – Lawmakers at the Roundhouse have passed a bill that would protect volunteers from personal liability when working for a non-profit organization. House Bill 224 would cover trained volunteers acting in the scope of their assigned duties. New Mexico is one of a handful of states that doesn’t have a law on the books like this. The bill’s sponsors say nonprofits rely on volunteers to provide valuable services like delivering meals to home bound people and that we should not be placing these people at risk. The bill now moves to the Senate.
