For those of us who don't instantly click links.... what is "this"?
Understand your caution.
This is an organization/association known advocating the legal processes known as "Class Action". Consumers are protected by class action against defective products or services. Personally, I believe that consumer protection is essential in a free market where mistakes or intent bring harm to the consuming public.

Yes, doublespeak is a fair assessment of the bill.
The bill is design to significantly restraint the criteria for a class action lawsuit is.
Two or more individuals harmed by a product, but suffering different losses can not be grouped together. (A bank charges two or more customers different authorized fees; because the fees are different, the consumers are not allowed to join in the suit..only consumers with exact fraudulent charges can group together)
As is the usual case, the devil is in the details, but I don't believe that a majority of voters want it to be made more difficult if not impossible to hold a company liable for harm to the public.
