Senate President Galvano signals Workers’ Comp could be on table


New Senate President Bill Galvano is promising to revisit Florida’s workers’ compensation insurance laws, despite two decreases in rates for employers.

Galvano said the laws need to be looked at because of two state Supreme Court rulings, including one that eliminated caps on fees charged by attorneys who represent injured workers. He said there is a chance the rulings could result in rate hikes in the future.

“I don’t want to be in a situation where they spike and then we are running to fix it at that point,” Galvano, R-Bradenton, told reporters Friday. “I’d rather look at the system and make any changes that are necessary while we have the luxury of not having high rates.”
