Gov. Fallin Shares Workers' Compensation Changes with OKC Chamber
Gov. Mary Fallin told members of the Oklahoma City Chamber she supports many of the changes contained in workers' compensation law making its way through the legislature.
"Oklahoma's ranked among the top states in the nation on workers' compensation premium costs," Fallin said. "I've told our legislators, and our Pro Tem, and our Speaker, 'If you get a bill to my desk that does those things, I am very supportive of moving toward an administrative system.'"
Fallin's comments on Feb. 21 were the first to endorse the plan outlined in a bill by Senate President Pro Tempore Brian Bingman of Sapulpa.
The governor also told the crowd her son commented on a video produced the OKC Chamber encouraging people to live in Oklahoma City. Fallin said she was encouraged that might keep him in Oklahoma.
