Industrial Commission Budget Clears General Assembly

On Wednesday, the Senate unanimously passed House Bill 79, the Industrial Commission budget. Typically, the Industrial Commission budget is the least controversial of the state’s four budget bills — which also include the transportation, BWC, and main operating bills. This year was no exception as the bill moved through the House and Senate with zero opposition. HB 79 provides the operating funds for the Ohio Industrial Commission, which serves as the adjudicating body for employers and employees on disputed workers’ compensation claims. 6/20/2019
