Update: Tort Reform Alive Again in Hawaii

We've been following the on-again, off-again tort reform efforts in Hawaii for the past month or so.   As Chris recently mentioned, the original bill died in the judiciary committee at the end of February.

Now, it appears back "on again."   A revised version of the bill has passed the health committee, KHNL reports.  But the win may be short-lived as the bill now goes back to the judiciary committee.

At the same time, a resolution was offered in the House asking the Legislative Service Bureau "to study the effects of medical tort reform on access to health care and to submit a report of its findings to the Legislature no later than twenty days prior to the convening of the Regular Session of 2009."
