PROPOSED REMOVAL OF $220 CAP AND SCHEDULE LIMITATION
The Legislators are at it again. Democratic Representative Joseph Mitchell, of Mobile has introduced HB 21 in the 2010 session that would seek to remove the $220 cap on weekly benefits. This bill would also remove the limitation to the schedule of injuries. This is not the first attempt at either of these. HB 18 was introduced in the 2009 session. (See previous entries under $220 cap). HB 21 is pending in the House Commerce Committee. The Committee chair has indicated that he has no plans to hear the bill in the immediate future.
