Last week the WSCFF assisted our friends in Olympia to file HB1909 and it’s companion SB5844 which relates to the confidentiality of workers comp records. Senators Dhingra and Kuderer are two of the Sponsors. If you recall, we endorsed BOTH of their campaigns this past summer.
On the same day, HB1913 and companion SB5849 which is presumptive disease expansion were filed. Both bills are scheduled for a hearing next week and we expect both to sail through their respective committees.
No update on our benefit improvement account yet. Guessing we will know more when the house and senate budgets come out.
