PIA National opposes HR 635, the "National Commission on State Workers' Compensation Laws Act of 2009." The bill would create the National Commission on State Workers' Compensation Laws. The Commission would be tasked with reviewing the recommendations from the past Commission and evaluating current state workers' compensation laws to determine their adequacy and whether additional remedies should be made available. Workers' compensation falls under the authority of the states and it is not in the jurisdiction of the Congress to interfere and undermine the current state-based system.
