Leo served as floor leader in the Texas House when they worked to pass Proposition 12 (tort reform) in 2003. In the ensuing nine years, that legislation has had a substantial impact on medical work in Texas and nationally. Punitive liability insurance rates for health care workers have moderated and are no longer crippling to doctors, nurses, dentists and technicians. Prop. 12 legislation protects medicine and business from frivolous lawsuits and has become a model for all fifty states because it was so well-conceived and well-implemented. The American Medical Association has now removed Texas from its list of states experiencing a liability crisis.
Additionally, Leo has a solid history of being pro-active in finding solutions for children’s health care issues in our state. Medical care is a major economic driver of our local economy, and re-electing our experienced and informed representative will ensure that these improvements are maintained and other problems solved in the future. We need Leo’s effective and visionary leadership. Re-elect Leo.
