House Introduces Five-Year NFIP Reauthorization Bill

President’s Budget has Workers Compensation Implications

California RIMS Resumes Monthly Tele-Coffee Calls with DIR Director Christine Baker

House Introduces Five-Year NFIP Reauthorization Bill
In late May, the House Financial Services Committee Republican leadership released six discussion draft bills along with their summaries. The six draft bills will form the ultimate NFIP reauthorization bill or bills the House will introduce in June. In the drafts, the mandatory purchase by commercial properties has been eliminated implying that property holders will have to get flood insurance from the private market. These bills would reauthorize the program for five years, while the legislation to reauthorize the program introduced in the Senate would reauthorize the program for ten years. View the draft bills.

US Budget

President’s Budget has Workers Compensation Implications
On May 23, 2017, The President's FY 2018 Budget was released. The $4.1 trillion budget drastically cuts or completely eliminates funding for numerous long-standing departments and initiatives, and raises spending in other areas. Specifically, the budget would eliminate the Workers Compensation Reverse Offsets for Social Security in 15 states that were preserved in federal legislation in 1981. These states have plans that reduce workers compensation benefits when the disabled worker is also receiving Social Security disability insurance benefits. This is known as reverse offset. View the entire budget.
