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”.
Reports on Texas’ workers compensation system will be due every other year, under legislation Gov. Greg Abbott enacted Tuesday.
The governor signed H.B. 1753, which cuts in half the frequency of required reports from the Workers’ Compensation Research and Evaluation Group.
The bill that took effect immediately requires the group to issue informational report cards no later than Dec. 1 of each even-numbered year. The report cards compare quality, costs, health care provider availability and other factors.
Before the bill was enacted, the group was required to prepare the report cards annually.
The state House of Representatives and the Senate both unanimously passed H.B. 1753.
