From: Representative Michael Peifer
To: All House members
Subject: State Workers' Insurance Fund
Please join me as a cosponsor of legislation to re-authorize the State Workers' Insurance Fund. Without such a reauthorization, the fund will expire on June 30, 2015.

The State Workers' Insurance Fund was created by Act 338 of 1915 and operates within the Department of Labor and Industry. It is a self-sustaining fund providing workers' compensation insurance to employers, including those refused policies by private insurance firms. SWIF is subject to underwriting rules, classification and rates promulgated by rating bureaus authorized by the State Insurance Commissioner. Premium rates are established by them based on the history of accidents by industry.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.

If you have any questions, or if you would like a copy of the legislation, please contact Barb Dysard at 783-2037 or bdysard@pahousegop.com

Introduced as HB1327
