Staff Analysis of the Legislation

 Under current law, the State Board of Workers' Compensation has broad authority to adopt and amend rules applicable to workers' compensation matters. This bill would add several specific procedural requirements for adoption of such rules, including a requirement that such rules avoid excessive costs on regulated entities and to require that such rules provide the least restrictive alternative on such entities to avoid excessive costs. This bill would also give House and Senate committees the power to prevent any rule proposed by the State Board from going into effect.
