PAGE 4 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N Panel removes limits \ on malpractice fees WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 11, 1976 Nancy Kissinger Arizona stalwarts recuperating say ; By WILLIAM ACTON ; ClUan Phoenix Bureau : PHOENIX -- The Senate ; Health and Welfare Commit- Â· tee has removed House-ap- ! proved limits on lawyer fees ;in medical malpractice cases. '. Action came yesterday as ;the committee substantially ', revised the malpractice mea;sure approved by the House. The committee approved a 'number of amendments aimed ;at returning the bill to the Â· form approved by the Joint interim Committee on Malpractice earlier in the session. ; The Senate committee version says the court, at the request of either party in the suit, shall review the lawyer fees uf both parties. The House version established sliding limits on lawyer fees, Â· The state bar association and trial lawyers fought any statutory limitation on lawyer fees other than coun review. In other action, the committee reversed its position and wiped out the House-passed clause prohibiting state money from subsidizing malpractice costs arising from abortions. Monday, the committee with one member absent and by a tie vote retained the abortion rider. The missing members, Betty Morrison, D-Phoenix, provided the victory margin yesterday for the opponents of the abortion rider. The committee also struck that part of the House-approved bill requiring the state Board of Medical Examiners to suspend a doctor's license if he is convicted of a felony. In other major changes from the House-passed measure, the committee: --Restructured the medical- legal review panel concept by turning it into a courtroom preliminary hearing before a single judge before a malpractice complaint is filed. The House wants a panel of doctors and lawyers to consider claims after a complaint is filed. Both are designed to reduce cases. --Recommended that juries be informed only of how much medical insurance benefits a victim has collected when determining awards. The House wanted all benefits, including nonmedical Social Security and other income maintenance insurance, to be made known. Now, no insurance benefits can be considered by malpractice juries. --Reduced the size of the Board of Medical Examiners from the House-approved 11 members to seven. The House and the state board want 11. Brando declines NAACP award HOLLYWOOD (UP1) -Marlon Brando turned down the NAACP's humanitarian award, saying only a black person can understand black suffering. It was to have been presented to Brando at the association's Image Awards Banquet Saturday. Leaders of the group said he sent a telegram "respectfully declining this honor." Both sides agree that two of the members should be laymen. Now, no laymen serve. Lawmakers hope the bill will assure doctors and hospitals of affordable malpractice insurance after April 1, the date doctors will no longer be able to purchase coverage from private companies here. Gutierrez said he expected final committee approval of the revised bill late today. Pick up!

BOSTON (AP) -- Nancy Kissinger is "doing very well" and moving around more frequently after an operation for a gastric ulcer condition in which 40 per cent of her stomach was removed, her doctors report. Mrs. Kissinger, 41, the wife of Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger, had suffered from the ulcer condition for nine years and had been treated in several Washington hospitals before Saturday's operation at Massachusetts General Hospital. GOP opposition to Ford ^harmful* Republicans opposing President Ford's bid for nomination in August are overlooking the long-range results of rejecting an incumbent, say members of the President's Arizona committee. Ford supporters, including state chairman Burton Kruglick, co-chairman Barbara Janoff, national committeewoman Mary Crisp and Ford's regional campaign chairman, Al Zapanta, brought their message before the Pima County terday. Republican Club yes- "Too many delegates want to go to Kansas City (site of the Republican National Convention) without looking at the long-run results of returning .the party to prominence," Zapanta said. Mrs. Crisp said that she did not think former California Gov. Ronald Reagan, Ford's only active opposition, could win in November, and that his nomination would hurt Republican candidates for U.S. Senate and congressional posts across the country. She explained that she was speaking of the overall effect on Republican candidates nationwide and that such an eventuality would not hurt the chances of Republican candidates in Arizona. "The question is: Do, we, in 1976, want to have a viable Republican Party?" Mrs. Crisp asked. "Right now we have the White House and that's about all." Zapanta asked that Arizona delegates judge the President on his record. "He did not have a mandate from the people," he said. "But when Ford came into office, NATO was coming apart, dominoes were falling in southeast Asia, we were faced with inflation, recession and large unemployment. These problems have not solved themselves." In CHUCK whrrc treatment will not help, we will recommend Â·nd explain hair IrarmplanlH.
