Senate Roll Call 759 on
2011 House Bill 5002: Revise workers comp benefits

Passed 20 to 16 in the Senate on December 7, 2011.
    See Who Voted "Yes" and Who Voted "No".
To modify the definitions and requirements in the law that mandates employers obtain insurance covering injured workers compensation benefits. Among other things the bill would revise the formula by which compensation levels are set, require workers still able to work to make a "good faith effort" to find work, and more. The most controversial provision bases an injured workers compensation on "reasonably available" job pay levels, rather than the person's previous job, even if the person can't find one of those "reasonably available" jobs. A number of these proposed changes reflect what courts have already ruled in some controversial cases. The bill would not apply to police and firefighters.
