Senate Rejects Award Limits in Malpractice - New York Times

The Senate failed to move forward the Republicans' medical malpractice bills, S.22 and S.23. Senate Rejects Award Limits in Malpractice, New York Times, May 9, 2006.

Among other things, the bills would impose a limit on noneconomic damages. S.23 (the Healthy Mothers and Healthy Babies Access to Care Act) focuses on OB/GYN services; S.22 (the Medical Care Access protection Act of 2006 or MCAP Act) relates to health care liability generally.
