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”.

H.B. 617, sponsored by 13 Democratic senators, prevailed in a 21-19 vote Thursday along party lines. The bill passed the House of Delegates on Feb. 10 in a 55-44 vote.

Virginia is the only state that does not allow for repetitive motion claims, such as carpal tunnel and spinal disc problems, in workers compensation.
