Governor, Lawmakers Reach Workers Comp “Compromise”

Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and top Democrats have agreed upon a key element of a workers´ compensation reform plan.

The development greatly increases the likelihood the Legislature will pass a bill to reform the system for aiding injured workers.

Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez told the Los Angeles Times that he and the governor “found a compromise”after meeting for 90 minutes yesterday afternoon.

Senate President Pro Tem John Burton says a legislative package should be ready for consideration by a six-member Assembly-Senate conference committee today.

The meeting is scheduled for 11 a.m.
