A Boys and Girls club planned for Bryan County will benefit from a new state law.
The law releases schools from personal injury and property damage liability for after-hour programs hosted by community organizations.
Jason Simeroth, Durant ISD superintendent, said the law will help the new Boys and Girls club better serve the community -- without the risk of frivilous lawsuits.
Durant Intermediate will host the new club.
He said they're still in the planning stages and do not have a start date yet.
The new law goes into effect Nov. 1.
