New state workers’ comp plan released

OKLAHOMA CITY — A new plan to overhaul Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation system has been unveiled in the House and is scheduled for a hearing next week.

A 320-page bill to transition Oklahoma’s court-based system to an administrative one was distributed to legislators on Thursday and posted on the legislature’s website.

The bill is scheduled for a hearing Tuesday in the House Judiciary Committee.

Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman declined to discuss the specifics of the bill, and says there still are some “minor things” that need to be worked out in negotiations with House leaders on changes to the bill.

The House, Senate and governor’s office have agreed on the move to an administrative system.
