Workers’ Compensation… Passed!?

Like a monster in a bad horror movie, although we killed it just two days before, it has sprung back to life with a vengeance.  House Bill 1698 failed on May 29th receiving only 55 votes of the required 60 for passage.  However, it was brought back for a SECOND vote with only 3 hours to go at the end of the legislative session.  This time the bill received 62 yes votes and 43 no’s.  The Workers’ Compensation bill instituting a 30% fee schedule cut has officially passed despite staunch opposition from the entire health care community.  Members can expect more information on this issue and our other legislative issues in the very near future.
