Last night, the CSAP GA Committee (with SCPS members included!), and the Board (with SCPS members included!), met to consider new positions on legislation, the Governor’s CARE Courts proposal, and the so-called “Fairness for Injured Patients (FIPA) Act. The GA Committee recommended, and the Board concurred, that CSAP oppose the FIPA Initiative and join the coalition of organizations fighting to protect the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act (MICRA) of 1975.
