One Medical Malpractice Bill Remains

Cheyenne, Wy – The last major medical malpractice bill before the legislature will come up for a final time Wednesday and it could face some trouble. House Joint Resolution 11 would ask voters to make a medical review panel constitutional. Senator Charlie Scott added a major amendment to the proposal to make up for some bills that failed earlier in the session. But, Scott says he will try to get it removed because the amendment only had 15 supporters and the resolution needs 20 votes to pass. Scott does say the resolution could help a little, but others admit they are having second thoughts.
