Comprehensive Medical Liability Reform Legislation Advances
A1982, a bill addressing comprehensive medical liability reform passed the Assembly Health Committee today with the support of five Democrats and three Republicans. There were two abstentions, Asw. Nancy Munoz (R – Union) and Asm. Jerry Green (D – Union).
The move marks the most progress on comprehensive tort reform in over six years. The measure is now pending on the Assembly floor for a vote by the full House. MSNJ thanks sponsor Asm. Herb Conaway, MD (D – Burlington) and will work with him to see that this momentum continues.
