OAJ SIDEBAR

JUNE 22, 2017

Ohio General Assembly dashes to finish budget bill
With the state fiscal year set to end on June 30, the Ohio legislature is focused on enacting the state budget bill (HB 49).  OAJ is closely monitoring the bill to ensure no bad amendments are inserted.  At this point, there is nothing bad to report.  Budget details will be covered in the next Sidebar.

WC statute of limitations reduced to one year
Despite OAJ’s objections, a Senate committee has approved the BWC budget bill that includes a reduction in the statute of limitations (under 4123.84) from two years to one.   The good news is the same Senate committee deleted a House-passed provision that would ban illegal aliens from receiving benefits.  The bill also contains other positive changes that OAJ requested. HB 27 already passed the House and now awaits a vote of the full Senate.

Medical negligence legislation revised
The sponsor of the physician-hospital medical negligence legislation, Rep. Bob Cupp, presented to a House committee a revised or substitute bill.  The substitute bill makes a couple improvements from our perspective.  For instance, the sub bill removes a provision that said a plaintiff may present evidence only of the amount actually paid, and cannot reveal the amount billed.  OAJ’s Patient Advocacy Task Force is fully engaged and opposes the sub bill.  HB 7 remains pending in the House Civil Justice Committee.

Rewrite of Ohio structured settlement law advances
Legislation amending Ohio’s current law that regulates structured settlements and the transfer payment rights has passed the House.  An identical bill is pending in a Senate committee. The legislation was negotiated between the National Structured Settlement Trade Association and the National Association of Settlement Purchasers with OAJ’s input.  OAJ supports the legislation.
