Cuomo Proposes Worker's Compensation Financing PlanWednesday, July 10, 2013
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has recently proposed an unusual plan to relieve the debt of some 10,000 state-wide businesses who are members of failed, dissolved or defaulted group insurance trusts so that they can better provide coverage for work-related injuries. The idea is to rearrange financing through public channels to cover about $800 million in Workers’ Compensation liabilities. Specifically, it will permit the Workers’ Compensation Board to issue bonds to cover liabilities through the Dormitory Authority of New York.
