Attorney Rosasco Travels to Albany to Advocate for Workers' Compensation Alliance

Monday, April 10, 2006

I will be travelling to Albany tomorrow with New York Workers’ Compensation Alliance Legislative Co-Chair John Sciortino to take part in the second of a series of Roundtable Discussions hosted by Senator George Maziarz, New York State Senate Labor Committee Chair, regarding Workers’ Compensation Reform. Since Workers’ Comp Reform was recently detached from the Governor’s budget bill, it appears that workers’ compensation reform will continue to be on the Albany radar screen for the rest of the year.
Also scheduled to participate in the Roundtable are: Randall Wolken, President, Central New York Manufacturing Association; Cecelia Norat, Director of State Operations for AIG; William Melchionni, Nationwide Insurance; Mark Alesse, New York State Director, National Federation of Independent Business; and Ted Potrikus, Executive Vice President, Retail Council of New York State; and our friend and advocate for injured workers, Joel Shufro, President of NYCOSH. Members of the Senate Labor Committee are also expected to be in attendance.
Of course, the Workers’ Compensation Alliance will be advocating for a long overdue benefit increase, no caps on PPD’s (permanent partial disabilities), and expediting needed medical care for injured workers. Yet we will also be proposing a fair pharmacy benefit schedule that should save employers significant amounts of money by mandatory use of generic drugs. Surrounded by all these insurance and employer lobbyists, it looks like John and I will have our work cut out for us!
