House/Senate divide on state med-mal limits



The Texas Medical Association, unlike some physician groups, refuses to support the health care bill on Capitol Hill. One of its particular concerns:

TMA wants the legislation to explicitly protect the state's caps on non-economic damages in malpractice lawsuits. The House bill, thanks to an amendment by Rep. Henry Cuellar of Laredo, does. But the Senate bill, according to TMA, does not.
