House Bill 393 (2005) eliminated the yearly adjustment to the non-economic damage cap.  In addition, HB 393 repealed the requirement for the Department of Insurance, Financial Institutions and Professional Registration to calculate the adjusted cap yearly and provide it to the Secretary of State.  Without a statutory mandate to calculate and provide the adjusted damage cap, the Department will defer to the courts to determine what non-economic damage cap applies to those cases that were filed prior to August 28, 2005.
