Tort Reform in South Carolina?

On Thursday, a tort reform bill was introduced in the South Carolina Senate.  Supporters argue that the bill will create a more business-friendly climate in the state.  The contents?

Among other things, the bill would limit the amount of bond that a business has to post when appealing an extremely large verdict; and it would allow for the introduction of the nonuse of seat belts in civil cases.

The Charleston Regional Business Journal has the story.
