Hank Attends Congressional Hearing on Workers’ Compensation

Last month, Hank Patterson attended a Congressional hearing held by the Workforce Protections Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee, which examined state workers’ compensations systems.  The participants at the hearing discussed that “workers’ compensation systems have undergone numerous changes in the past decade as many states have begun strictly limiting workers’ compensation benefits – changes that may be stressing the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program. Additionally, the American Medical Association’s (AMA) guide to assessing injured workers has undergone significant changes in its latest edition, which has made consequential changes to injured workers’ evaluation procedure.”  See the committee site for details, as well as the comprehensive opening statement by Representative Lynn Woolsey.
