In national news:

The California Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau (WCIRB) is set to request a 10.2 percent mid-year reduction in advisory workers’ compensation rates based on lower-than-expected medical losses and claim severity in the state. WCIRB’s new rate filing is expected to be submitted today and will seek an advisory pure premium rate of $2.46 per $100 of payroll as of July 1st. This constitutes a decrease from $2.74 per $100 of payroll approved by the California Department of Insurance at the beginning of 2015.
