"Ten Years of Tort Reform in Texas"

Joseph Nixon and the Texas Policy Foundation have posted  "Ten Years of Tort Reform in Texas: A Review." The abstract provides:

Ten years of tort reform have provided greater access to health care and helped make Texas the nation’s leading job producer. Indeed, by recognizing the causal connection between economic prosperity and efficient, fair courts, the Texas legislature passed and Governor Rick Perry signed House Bill 4 (HB4)—powerful tort reform legislation that is the foundation of the Texas economic miracle. Yet, despite the awesome economic growth and increased access to health care triggered by HB4, members of the trial bar are still working to overturn this reform. While Texans should stand their ground and rebuff efforts to undo HB4’s successful tort reforms, all Americans should take notice of Texas’s remarkable transformation and look to enact similar reforms in their own states.

efficient, fair courts

That would be funny if it wasn't built upon the broken bodies of those that were unable to find justice and were, therefore, victimized a second time.
