A Billion Back - Making Workers Comp Work for Ohio

Reiterating his administrations singular focus on creating jobs and improving Ohio's economy, Gov. John Kasich endorsed three specific actions proposed by BWC Administrator /CEO Steve Buehrer with respect to managing the portion of net assets that exceeds the board-approved ratios.

The Proposal:

---Requests that the BWC Board of Directors authorize a one-time dividend of $1 billion for private employers and public-taxing districts.

---Expands the agency's successful Safety Grant Program from $5 million to $15 million to support expanded statewide efforts to promote workplace safety and encourage further investment in protecting Ohio's workers.

---Asks the State Legislature to modernize the premium collection model by authorizing the BWC to move toward a prospective-payment system and subsequently requesting the board issue an additional $900 million to mitigate transition costs. This switch would also result in rate reductions of two (2) percent for private employers and four (4) percent for public employers.
