Latest Issue: 2022 Issue # 1

As 2021 came to an end, it was clear legislatures around the nation were willing to expand their legislative agendas beyond their COVID-19 healthcare legislative focus. An uptick in medical liability tort reform bills revealed an increase in legislative attacks on the practice of medicine and medical liability reforms.
