FEBRUARY 13, 2020

Workers' Compensation 

WC coverage for first responders with PTSD 
On the same day the bill was passed by committee, HB 308 passed on the House floor. This legislation will make police, firefighters and EMTs eligible for workers’ comp coverage when diagnosed with PTSD.   

Speaker Householder passed the bill with 37 Republican and 37 Democratic votes (74 total) in favor, while 24 Republicans opposed the bill. It is uncommon for legislation to pass without a majority of the majority party. OAJ supports this bill, and we are thankful to Speaker Householder and Minority Leader Sykes for their commitment and leadership on this issue.

Positive workers’ comp amendments 
The Senate Insurance and Financial Institutions Committee has held three hearings on HB 81, the positive workers' compensation reform bill. On Wednesday February 12th, the committee accepted two amendments that the OAJ supported. With these changes and widespread support, the bill is ready to go.

Long Arm Statute 
House Bill 272 was heard by the House Judiciary Committee. This bill will improve Ohio’s Long-arm personal jurisdiction statute, to ensure that outsiders that cause harm to our Ohio families and companies can be held accountable in Ohio courts. The OAJ supports this bill, and we are thankful for Edmond Mack’s proponent testimony in October.

Early Voting Begins Soon 
Ohio’s primary election will be held on March 17th, with early absentee voting beginning on February 19th. Our primary is about the halfway point for elections across the country. It looks like the Democratic presidential race may still be hotly contested, and there are many other important primary elections throughout the state. 

Regardless of where you live or your political affiliation, please vote in the March election.
