In legislative news:

Crediting group self-insurance funds with “saving” the workers’ comp market in the 1980s but urging the need for oversight, Representative Broadwater presented his fund regulation bill to Senate Labor yesterday. HB 280 gives further authority to the Commissioner of Insurance to govern corrective action plans, among other things. The bill passed favorably with virtually no discussion. Next it will go to the floor of the Senate where it is expected to pass. Labor Committee chair Senator Neil Riser stated yesterday that there will be no further meetings of the Committee this Session, effectively, this kills any pending workers’ comp legislation that has not yet had a hearing.
