Gov. Pataki's "Deform" Workers' Compensation Bill LanguageTuesday, January 24, 2006
Click here to read this mean spirited pablum. As usual, the “devil is in the details” when it comes to New York workers’ compensation benefits. I’ll have a more detailed analysis of this flawed workers comp bill forthcoming soon. Until then, if you’re an injured worker or property taxpayer (Yes – the Governor’s workers comp plan shifts costs to you!), read it and weep.
I really wish the President (oops – Governor!) would simply move to Iowa already since he won’t be around to see his own New York State citizens suffer under this silly proposal. Why doesn’t he just make it part of his Presidential platform to “reform” workers comp across the country? He’ll certainly carry states like Texas and Mississippi. It wasn’t so long ago that states like those didn’t give workers lunch breaks!
