Information:               This bill will limit your right to legal action against healthcare providers, based on the validity of your case determined by review panel. Our rights should not be left up to a panel that may or may not have biases. This is not tort reform, this is removing your right to a legal remedy. One day no one will have their day in court, just an arbitrary decision by a biased review panel.
