WORKER’S COMPENSATION – Amends existing law to define a public employer and a public corporation with respect to certain requirements regarding security for compensation.

RS31188C1 / H0609

This legislation would allow a city, country or district as defined in 72-301(6) and 72-928(d) to go to an open market for an insurer of choice for worker's compensation without having to secure its liability for payment of compensation with the state insurance fund.

There will be no fiscal impact to state or local governments if this legislation passes because it does not create or expand any programs and does not require the expenditure of any funds.
