By THOMAS PICKERING and JAMES STOUTENBERG

Email, call, mail and visit your House member and urge a 'no' vote on HB 2 February 16, 2018 - 5:30pm

By BILL LONDRIGAN

Kentucky State AFL-CIO President

As you know, HB 2, which caps benefits for injured workers at 15 years, passed the House Economic Development and Workforce Investment Committee yesterday. 

HB 2 has two readings and will get its third reading on Tuesday, and could be voted on during Tuesday’s session.  Rep. Jill York has filed Floor Amendment 1 to HB 2 – which protects and improves injured worker benefits. 

Email your state representative and urge a 'no' vote on HB 2 February 16, 2018 - 4:57pm

By BILL LONDRIGAN

Kentucky State AFL-CIO President

Yesterday, a state House Committee voted 15-7 to pass HB2, a Workers' Compensation “Reform” bill, cutting medical benefits for injured workers. Now it is going to the House floor for a vote. This fight is far from over, but we need your help.

I'm asking you to email your State Representative now, before they vote on the House floor, to defend these benefits and affected workers--current and future.
