GOP Lawsuit Reform Measure Passes Committee

The Senate Rules Committee passed a lawsuit reform measure today that Republican leaders say is critical to their "Jobs" agenda.

The Rules Committee approved HB 2128 by a vote of 11 to 5.

“I am pleased by the efforts of my colleagues who chose to make this critical issue a priority,” said Sen. Anthony Sykes, R-Moore, Senate author of the bill. “This is a vital piece of our economic development and jobs agenda, and I appreciate the compromise that we were able to garner on the issue between the Senate and the House.”
