Duty to Provide Emergency Assistance (Watch) 

SB 516 (Mayfield) and HB 345 (Goodson) require a person at the scene of an emergency to render aid to a person who is in imminent danger, in certain circumstances. The bills establish a criminal penalty for those who do not render aid. The bills also provide immunity from liability for individuals who provide reasonable assistance. (Cruz)
