Workers’ compensation reform bill on the move in the Senate

Sen. Michael Baumgartner’s (R-Spokane) bill, SB 5822, is continuing to move through the Senate. The bill would improve the workers’ compensation system by modifying procedures for claims to self-insured organizations, clarifying third-party recovery, occupational disease claims, and lowering age restrictions on structured settlements. AWC supports these reasonable and modest reforms to workers’ compensation.
