05.18.17 - O'Brien: Workers Forced To Pay For Boss' Mistakes In Ohio Workers' Comp Bill

 

State Rep. Michael O’Brien (D-Warren) yesterday voted “no” on the Republican-led charge to restrict worker’s access to healthcare and benefits through the state’s Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) budget bill, House Bill 27. The bill passed the House Insurance Committee and the House Finance Committee on a party-line vote Tuesday. 

“Instead of moving to strengthen protections for our selfless, everyday heroes, Republican lawmakers created more hoops for injured or ill firefighters to jump through to get the care they need,” said O’Brien. “First responders who experience life changing situations for the safety of others deserve to know they will be covered for injuries sustained on the job, but unfortunately, I cannot assure my firefighter constituents will be taken care of due to this dangerous provision.”
