Bills advance to limit suits against Mississippi landowners

House Judiciary A Committee chairman Mark Baker, R-Brandon, background, listens as Rep. Ed Blackmon, D-Canton, foreground, argues against the Landowner Protection Act, which would reduce the liability of business owners when someone is injured on their property, during a meeting of the committee, Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019, in Jackson, Miss. The measure passed the committee, but other representatives still wanted to talk about the bill after Baker declared it passed, and Blackmon chastised Baker for ending the meeting without being recognized for a question.
