BWC and Industrial Commission Budgets Introduced


The General Assembly has introduced both the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget (HB 27) and the Industrial Commission budget (HB 28). The bills, which are historically filed separately from the State Operating Budget, usually have a swift passage by the General Assembly. A summary of policy changes in the introduced versions is included in this comparison document, and BWC prepared this summary of budget facts. Hearings are expected to begin shortly in the House.  2/9/2017
