Compromise Reached on Ballot Language
Cheyenne, Wy – The legislature has ironed out differences between the House and Senate on a proposed constitutional amendment. The measure would cap non-economic damages in medical malpractice cases. Conference committee members argued about what wording would go to voters. Senators insisted on defining both economic and non-economic losses in the wording. Representative Colin Simpson argued that since the bill focused on non-economic damages, that should be at the top of the ballot question.
Simpson admits he still worries that voters totally understand what they are voting on. Senator Grant Larson says getting accurate information to the voters will be the hardest part.
