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”.

West Virginia considers amending presumptions for first responders


The West Virginia legislature on Wednesday introduced three bills that would amend several presumptions for first responders.

H.B. 2025 would eliminate language in the law that permits compensable diagnoses of post-traumatic stress disorder to allow for all “licensed mental health providers” to diagnose PTSD, and not just “psychiatrists,” as is stated in current law.

Both H.B. 2128 and S.B. 79 would expand rebuttable cancer presumptions for firefighters to include bladder cancer, mesothelioma and testicular cancer.

All three bills were sent to committees.
