  • TX Gov Perry Leads the Charge on Liability Reform


    If we are to reign in the skyrocketing costs of health care in America, medical liability reform is going to play a leading role. It’s not easy to do as there are powerful interests standing in the way. Texas Governor Rick Perry isn’t afraid of taking them on and he’s providing an example for medical liability reform nationwide with his loser pays proposal based on the British model.

    The Health Coalition on Liability and Access (HCLA) is getting behind Gov. Perry’s efforts with information about his proposal and a petition for citizens to lend their voice to the effort.

    I encourage everyone concerned about the trajectory of health costs to sign the petition and get behind Gov. Perry to reform our out-of-control litigation environment.
