SB 44, Senator Ryan Gatti’s bill which addresses e-mod and workers’ comp premium adjustments for employers after successful subrogation, moved favorably out of the Senate Labor and Industrial Relations Committee yesterday. The bill had previously been reviewed twice by the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council (WCAC). At the last meeting, it was unanimously recommended by the Council as amended. OWCA Director Sheral Kellar testified in support of the bill during the hearing, which did not generate significant debate among the assembled Labor Committee members.
