Georgia Tort Reform Update....
From the Athens Banner-Herald:New committee named to examine tort reform
House Speaker Glenn Richardson was expected today to name Harlem Republican Rep. Barry Fleming as chairman of a special committee to handle the combustible issue of tort reform.

Fleming said the committee, to be called the Special Committee on Civil Justice Reform, would likely meet in the next couple of weeks to begin handling the controversial question of restrictions on medical-malpractice lawsuits.

The hope is that by streamlining the process the likelihood of passage will increase. We shall see.
The first bill, Senate Bill 3 is in committee this week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
