Legislative Update: Directed care bill SB 1407 withdrawn

On Behalf of | Apr 24, 2017 | Workers Compensation |

Senate Bill 1407, which would have allowed the state, its counties and cities to decide which doctor injured public servants had to see for medical care, ran into a dead end this legislative session. The bill’s primary sponsor Sen. Karen Fann withdrew SB 1407 when it became apparent that the problematic legislation lacked support.
