TMLT AND TMA WORK TO PROTECT LIABILITY REFORMS
TMA and Texas Medical Liability Trust (TMLT) leaders met to discuss prefiled legislation and potential issues that the Texas Legislature might consider over the next 132 days. Our principal concern is ensuring that no legislation passes that would negatively impact the hard-fought tort reforms enacted in 2003. With strong support from the big three — Governor Abbott, Lieutenant Governor Patrick, and Speaker Straus — as well as widespread support from members of the Texas Senate and Texas House, we are optimistic these reforms can be protected. TMLT was created by the Texas Legislature in 1979 to provide medical liability coverage to TMA members. TMLT is the largest and most respected medical liability provider in the state, protecting more than 17,000 Texas physicians of all specialties, practice types, and locations.
