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”.

New Mexico lawmakers to consider more than doubling comp fines

NM capitol

New Mexico lawmakers are considering a bill that would increase to $2,500 the maximum fine for those who violate the state’s Workers’ Compensation Act.

H.B. 329, introduced Tuesday and sent to committee, applies specifically to “any person who fails to file a report required by, or who violates any provision” of the state’s comp law.

The state has discretion on fines, which are currently capped at $1,000 for each occurrence with a minimum of $25.
