Some real ideas on malpractice reform

So far, I am liking this Republican majority in Raleigh:

North Carolina Republican lawmakers are attempting to use their new majority status to advance another policy goal that’s been stymied for years: Medical malpractice reform that they contend would bring down costs for doctors and other businesses.

Senate leader Phil Berger, R-Rockingham, said Tuesday that GOP colleagues will file a bill this week to limit non-economic damages in malpractice cases and divide such trials into two parts – for questions of liability and monetary damages. Meanwhile, House Speaker Thom Tillis told the North Carolina Chamber later Tuesday he’d assemble a committee to look at legal issues this session as a way to reduce the regulatory burden on small business.
