Laramie, Wy – A group opposed to a pair of proposed constitutional amendments concerning medical malpractice, is accusing the other side of having ulterior motives. Shauna Roberts of Citizens for Real Insurance Reform says those who favor the amendments, want them so that liability will be limited in all areas. Roberts says she respects truckers, but thinks they must pay for mistakes and be accountable.
But she thinks the Medical Society has gotten other groups together to set damage limits on various forms of liability. The group called The Partnership to Protect Affordable Health Care involves special interest groups from the Trucking Association to the Heritage Society.
