Looking for who sets priorities

-A A +A
By Merilee Dannemann

There will probably be legislation on workers’ compensation next January. The interesting question is whether any controversial – and important – issues will see the light of day.
Workers’ compensation legislation often originates from the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Council, a statutory body of six members, three representing employers and three representing workers, appointed by the governor. The council was created as part of the 1990 reform of the workers’ compensation law. Its official role is to report annually on the state of the workers’ compensation system to the governor and Legislature.
Years ago, this morphed into the annual expectation that legislation on workers’ compensation would either originate from the council or, if it came from anyone else, would be reviewed by the council, and its recommendation would be passed to the Legislature – to be considered seriously or not, as legislators choose.
