Lager Proposes Medical Lawsuit Cap

If State Senator Brad Lager of Savannah gets his way, Missourians could decide if there should be a limit on certain medical lawsuits.

Lager proposed a measure that would let voters grant lawmakers the authority to put limits on quality of life damages for medical lawsuits in a hearing. The state Supreme Court ruled these caps unconstitutional last year, but multiple state lawmakers have sponsored bills to restore the caps. Lager says putting the issue on the ballot is the right way to decide.
