SS SB 239, 2015 (Amended Section - as Truly Agreed)
1.010. 1. The common law of England and all statutes
and acts of parliament made prior to the fourth year of the reign
of James the First, of a general nature, which are not local
to that kingdom and not repugnant to or inconsistent with the
Constitution of the United States, the constitution of this state,
or the statute laws in force for the time being, are the rule
of action and decision in this state, any custom or usage to
the contrary notwithstanding, but no act of the general assembly
or law of this state shall be held to be invalid, or limited
in its scope or effect by the courts of this state, for the reason
that it is in derogation of, or in conflict with, the common
law, or with such statutes or acts of parliament; but all acts
of the general assembly, or laws, shall be liberally construed,
so as to effectuate the true intent and meaning thereof.
2. The general assembly expressly excludes from this section the common law of England as it relates to claims arising out of the rendering of or failure to render health care services by a health care provider, it being the intent of the general assembly to replace those claims with statutory causes of action.
