Westerman Votes for Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act of 2017
Frivolous lawsuits have made it difficult for entrepreneurs to do business in America. Action has been taken by Congress this week that would tackle this and other problems in our civil litigation system. If we are to once again reestablish America the land of opportunity for entrepreneurs and dreamers, we must continue to improve the environment for job creators, which includes reducing and preventing frivolous lawsuits. In Arkansas, 49 percent of residents work for a small business. These reforms are necessary for each one of them and for all those who aspire to step out and create their own American dream free from frivolous litigation.
