BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Montana lawmakers increase comp death benefits


Montana lawmakers on Thursday passed legislation to increase the maximum amount paid out for burial expenses for workers who die on the job.

H.B. 198, which passed the Senate in a 46-4 vote and passed the House unanimously in February, would raise the maximum payment for reasonable burial expenses for an employee whose death is the result of an accidental injury arising out of employment to $10,000 from the previous maximum of $4,000.

The payment is not part of the workers compensation that might be paid out to surviving dependents.

The bill now goes to Gov. Greg Gianforte for his signature.
