Legislation Calling for National Work Comp Commission - 1171 - 08-07-2008

H.R. 6714 was introduced on July 31, 2008 by Rep. Baca (D-CA) and referred to the House Committee on Education and Labor.
This bill would study and investigate state work comp systems and make recommendations for improvement.
very similar to Senator Jacob Javits commission set up in the early 70's.

As if Voices are being heard. I pray that some good will come from this. As I know, it all has to start somewhere, and what better place to start. Thanks 1171.

Suggestion in my opinion is it's now a good time to write/e-mail your State Senators and congressmen.

Tuffy, Dick Durbin will hear you, and also answer you back. Just so you know..


RE: Legislation Calling for National Work Comp Commission - Tuffy - 08-07-2008

Thanks BB, I knew that you have worked with him at times. I also think there are others that I will write also.

I think that this thread or information should be posted on the off topic area, so all can see, as some do not come to the workers area.
