New House Bill Would Set Limits

The bill would limit non-economic damages to $250,000 and punitive damages to the greater of twice the amount of economic damages awarded or $250,000. The med mal bill would also limit attorney contingent fees. Now that is some politics that we can get behind. Let’s see if it goes anywhere.
