implementing medical liability reform legislation to provide much-needed
relief for a health care system in crisis due to rampant lawsuit abuse. Sen.

system, including class action and bankruptcy bills earlier this year. He also
played a key role in passage of a bill to end frivolous lawsuits against gun

volunteers from lawsuit abuse, and another to protect manufacturers of
respirators from claims for which the manufacturers should bear no liability.
