“The nature in which this bill was fast-tracked through the legislature makes it clear that this legislation is little more than political payback to the plaintiffs’ bar,” wrote Rickard. “It would be a shame if one of the last bills you sign during your tenure as governor is one that was passed in such a manner.”
