Cheyenne, Wy – The Wyoming House has approved its version of a constitutional amendment that would place a cap on non-economic damages. Following extensive debate and opposition from the Speaker and several leading Republicans the house removed a provision that would have kept a cap from being less than 500-thousand dollars. Representative Colin Simpson says citizens benefit from having a floor in the bill.
But supporters of removing the money from the constitutional amendment urged Representatives to keep the amendment clean, and address money matters in separate legislation. The proposed amendment moves to final reading.
