    WI Gov. to Veto Med Mal Reform

    11/13/2005

    A bill to limit noneconomic medical malpractice awards passed the Wisconsin state legislature last week.

    "Caps promote a stable malpractice environment in Wisconsin and help ensure that Wisconsin patients will have access to high-quality medical care," said GOP state Senator Scott Fitzgerald, the bill's sponsor. Unfortunately, WI Gov. Doyle disagrees and has promised a veto of this important reform. The fight to keep Wisconsin from becoming a "Tort Hell Tundra" continues.
