HHS-designee Daschle's voting record on civil justice reform



Walter's mention of Sen. Daschle's alliance with the trial lawyers prompts a link to the National Association of Manufacturers' tally of the Senator's voting record from the 106th to 108th Congress (1999-2004).

We break out votes on legal issues, i.e., what the NAM "Key Vote Committee" deems to be the tort-reform position. On the identified 10 votes, Sen. Daschle voted against the tort-reform position 10 times. (Included were four health-care, medical liability-related votes.)
