Bridge Collapse Deal Reached

Minnesota legislators reached a deal to settle with the victims of last year's bridge collapse, reports the Strib. The default payment cap is $400,000, but a second fund will provide compensation for "extraordinary" losses -- medical expenses above $400,000 and the like. Those accepting the payments will waive future claims. It appears that victims are supportive of the bill.
