Work Comp Bill Finally Passed to Governor
The Missouri Senate and Missouri House today truly agreed and finally passed HB 1540, a bill that addresses only the co-employee liability issue.
Negotiations on the other work comp bill that addressed this issue and the occupational disease language together has not yet yielded language that is acceptable to employers, and in fact the most recent drafts were not favorable at all to employers.
HB 1540, sponsored by House Majority Floor Leader Tim Jones, was Truly Agreed and Finally Passed by the House today. The vote was 122-29 in the House.
