GOVERNOR PERRY TOUTS THE POWER OF 2003 MEDICAL LIABILITY REFORMS
During his State of the State Address, Gov. Rick Perry recognized a special guest who symbolized the progress Texas has made since passage of our 2003 liability reforms. "Joining us today is Dr. Javier Cardenas, an OB-Gyn who returned to his hometown of McAllen to practice medicine thanks to tort reform,” the governor said. “He represents all those doctors who are able to practice medicine in our state without the ever-present threat of a frivolous lawsuit. Those doctors represent better access to care, a higher quality of life, and, more importantly, lives saved." Dr. Cardenas enjoyed the attention. "Very cool day for my wife, kids (and me)!" he wrote on his Facebook page. "Hope I helped put a friendly face on tort reform."
