Self-Insurance Bill Gets Proponent Hearing

House Bill 268, which would expand the number of Ohio companies eligible for self-insurance by creating a second “B” fund, received its second hearing this week in the House Insurance Committee.

Two witnesses testified in support of the bill, the Ohio Trucking Association and BarryStaff Inc., a staffing company.

Manufacturers remain concerned about the bill’s potential to weaken Ohio’s Self-Insured fund. The OMA Safety and Workers’ Compensation Committee will be discussing the bill at its meeting on Wednesday, November 8. Register here for phone or in-person attendance. 11/2/2017
