Wyoming amendments faltering



Contrary to the trend that seemed to be under way an hour ago, the AP is reporting that both Wyoming medical malpractice initiatives are in trouble, with Amendment D, which would authorize the legislature to cap pain-and-suffering damages, falling behind 44-56 percent with nearly half the state's precincts reporting. Amendment C, which would authorize review panels in malpractice cases, was getting about 50 percent of the vote, but that may not be enough because of the state's distinctive practice of counting as "no" votes those cast by voters who did not pick either yes or no.
