Worker’s Comp Bill Eligible for Debate on Senate Floor
This morning, Senator Chuck Purgason, Chairman of the Senate Ways and Means and Fiscal Oversight Committee, reported HB 1403 to the Missouri Senate floor. HB 1403 is the worker’s compensation bill that addresses both the occupational disease and co-employee issues. Although it currently contains language regarding the Second Injury Fund, that language will be removed in a Senate Substitute.
The bill could be taken up at any time. Session ends one week from tomorrow, May 18.
