GOP Leaders Comment on Passage of Sen. Paddack’s
Lawsuit Reform Bill
Senate Co-President Pro Tempore Glenn Coffee commented on a lawsuit
reform bill authored by Democrat Sen. Susan Paddack of Ada Tuesday.
Senate Bill 824 won passage in the Senate Judiciary Committee on
a bipartisan 7 to 1 vote.
“This bill is a small step toward the lawsuit reform our
state desperately needs, and Senate Republicans look forward to
working with Sen. Paddack to achieve meaningful lawsuit reform this
session,” stated Coffee, R-Oklahoma City.
Senate Judiciary Committee Co-Chairman James A. Williamson, R-Tulsa,
said, “I am hopeful we can get a comprehensive lawsuit reform
package through the State Senate this year that will help take the
target off the backs of Oklahoma doctors and businesses.”
All four Republicans on the Judiciary Committee voted in favor
of Paddack’s bill.
