OCEAN CITY – Several lawmakers from the Lower Shore plan to attend a special session of the General Assembly next week. The two-day session called by Gov. Robert Ehrlich last week is set to begin on Monday to focus on passing legislation to bring down the cost of medical malpractice insurance for doctors.

Baltimore, MD – A coalition of doctors says a medical malpractice reform bill passed last week should have become law, despite the bill's shortcomings. The Save Our Doctors Protect Our Patients Coalition commended Governor Ehrlich and members of the General Assembly for last week's special session. But the group said it was disappointed a conference committee "could not sustain the fuller measure of tort reform approved by the House."
