Burn Center bill stalls in Senate

By The Associated Press

JACKSON – A bill designed to help Mississippi’s only burn center get paid ahead of others when patients win lawsuits has failed to pass in the Senate.
Senate Bill 2780 would create a hierarchy for payment when a burn victim wins a lawsuit. First the burn center would get paid, then the attorney and finally other hospitals where the patient was treated.
The bill could be called up for more debate.
