Press Release

Congressman Lamborn has issued the following statement following the passage of H.R. 1215, the Protecting Access to Care Act:

"I am pleased to vote in favor of this legislation that will reform medical malpractice and lower healthcare costs for Americans. The ridiculous increase of lawsuits filed against doctors has caused skyrocketing healthcare costs and has hindered the ability of medical professionals to do what they believe is best for patients. Under this legislation, damages will be capped, and patients will be able to keep more in compensation rather than lawyers. This bill is predicted to save $50 billion over ten years, and I am pleased to join my House colleagues in supporting it."
