Cheyenne, Wy – The legislature will get a chance to debate two bills that cap non-economic damages for medical malpractice and a piece of legislation that sets a million dollar cap on damages. Speaker Fred Parady urged a joint Super commitee to support his bill that actually names a cap amount because he thinks lawmakers should debate the issue.
However, Parady is not in love with the committees amendment that set the amount at a million dollars. He had proposed 400-thousand. Several medical providers want 250-thousand dollars, while attorneys don't want a cap on damages.
