Workers’ comp legislation heats up       
Immediate past WC Section chair Chelsea Fulton Rubin testified before the House Insurance Committee on the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill.  The committee reported the bill, sending it to the House Finance Committee where hearings and amendments are expected next week.  The BWC budget bill and the IC budget bill must soon pass the House and then have to be approved by the Senate before the end of June.

Another billion dollar refund for employers
The BWC announced plans to refund $1.5 Billion to employers, which represents a refund of 88% of all employer premiums paid last year.  In addition, the BWC announced in January it will reduce employer premiums by 20%, the largest premium reduction in 60 years.  Since 2011, the BWC has saved employers nearly $10 billion through refunds, rebates and rate reductions.

Raise SOL for civil suits involving sexual assault
Commenting on a report about an ex-OSU athletic doctor who sexually assaulted students in the 80s and 90s, Governor DeWine expressed support to extend the statute of limitations for sex crimes and said he wants the legislature to take a “hard look” at extending the statute of limitations for civil lawsuits.

Legislation targets OSU for past sex assault allegations
A narrowly crafted bill that would enable victims to sue OSU if the person was abused by university doctor has been introduced in the Ohio House and referred to the House Civil Justice Committee.   OAJ supports the legislation, but would like to see the extension of the statute of limitations in civil actions apply to all sexual assault victims.

Commercial credit reporting
OAJ member Jack Landskronner and a Dublin businesswoman testified in support of legislation that extends to small businesses the same legal protections that consumers enjoy under federal law – the right to see their report and to question inaccurate information.  OAJ supports the legislation, which is pending in the House Financial Institutions Committee.
