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”.

Bill would permit annual cancer screenings for firefighters under comp


Wyoming lawmakers are considering a bill that would permit firefighters to undergo annual cancer screenings under the workers compensation system.

H.B. 66, introduced Monday, presumes that all career firefighters “have been exposed to cancer-causing agents during the course and scope of their employment.”

The bill states that such “exposures shall be considered work-related injuries for which cancer screenings shall be provided as a workers' compensation award under the provisions of this act.”

Screenings would continue for no more than 10 years after the retirement of a firefighter, the bill stipulates.
