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”.

In addition, the maximum penalty for willful or repeated violations will increase from $136,532 per violation to $145,027 per violation.

The changes are in line with the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act Improvements Act of 2015, which requires agencies are required to adjust the level of civil monetary penalties and make subsequent annual adjustments for inflation no later than January 15 of each year.
