The OSIA Board and Legislative committee has many years experience in watching and influencing state and federal legislation. The committee reviews and analyzes proposed legislative and administrative rules revisions. Members participate actively with MLAC, Drew Hagedorn, OSIA lobbyist, and the Workers’ Compensation Division. Members may provide both written and oral testimony in legislative matters, and participate on various Workers’ Compensation Division rules advisory committees.
OSIA has a contracted lobbyist who works hard to keep our interests at the forefront. The workers’ compensation reforms of the 1990 and 1995 would not have been possible without the OSIA and its resources.
