House Committee Works with New Version of BWC Budget


This week the House Insurance Committee accepted a new version of House Bill 27, the budget bill for the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC). Among the multiple changes in the bill is an OMA supported measure that reduces from two years to one year the statute of limitation for a worker to report an injury. The committee is set to hear additional testimony and possible amendments next week. The committee did report out the Industrial Commission budget bill.  3/16/2017
