OAJ SIDEBAR

MARCH 30, 2017

BWC budget bill remains in House committee
The House Insurance Committee is preparing more changes for HB 27, the BWC biennial budget bill. The bill already contains several positive amendments that OAJ proposed and one negative one that slashes the statute of limitations for physical injuries from two years to one.  OAJ testified against the SOL cut and for an amendment to provide coverage for police and fire fighters diagnosed with PTSD.  The House committee will soon pass HB 27.

Firefighters with cancer get help
A new law that makes it easier for firefighters diagnosed with cancer to qualify for workers’ compensation coverage becomes effective on April 6.  The law establishes a presumption that the firefighter incurred cancer while working.  The Bureau of Workers’ Compensation is drafting rules to implement the new law.

Scorecard for hearing officers 
A House committee is considering an amendment to HB 28, the Industrial Commission budget bill, that would require the Commission to maintain a scorecard on hearing officers’ decisions.  The scorecard would categorize hearing officer’s decisions as pro-injured worker or pro-employer.  OAJ is lobbying vigorously for its defeat.  The bill is pending in the House Finance Committee.

OAJ supports restrictions on cognovit notes
Cognovit notes are unfair to small business and are offensive to our core values as Americans, OAJ wrote a House committee and urged the passage of legislation restricting their use.  The bill is pending in the House Financial Institutions, Housing & Urban Development Committee.
