PIA National is opposed to H.R. 635, the "National Commission on State Workers' Compensation Laws Act of 2009." The bill would create a commission tasked with reviewing the recommendations from a past commission and evaluating current state workers' compensation laws to determine their adequacy, and whether additional remedies should be made available.

What It Means to Agents:  There is no need for this bill. Workers' compensation falls under the authority of the states. Congress should not interfere in the state-based workers' compensation system, which is functioning well. This is a waste of time and money.
