Theresa D’Andreais facing a staggering debt left when her husband, Rocky, surpassed his $250,000 lifetime cap. She says they didn’t know the difference between a lifetime and annual caps, and assumed they had adequate insurance through his employer.

On Tuesday, D’Andrea joined Governor John Baldacci for a ceremonialsigning of the bill in Augusta. The state law goes into effect onJanaury 1st.
