Governor Urges a Vote of the Citizens
Cheyenne, Wy – Wyoming lawmakers were told to let citizens have their say on whether to cap damages in medical malpractice cases and not to let lobbyists bother them. Governor Dave Freudenthal asked that two constitutional amendments go to voters, so they can have the say on the future of health care in the state. Freudenthal made his comments at the start of the special legislative session on health care reform. The Governor says lobbyists have been very aggressive on this issue, but he urged legislators to press forward and do something to help out the citizens.
Freudenthal urged lawmakers to fight through these things and try and come up with some solutions. He says there is not one solution to the health care issue.
