Kasich proposes more workers' comp rebates

Published: Wed, August 13, 2014 @ 2:25 p.m.

COLUMBUS — Ohio private businesses and public offices would see another $1 billion in workers’ compensation rebates in comings months, under a proposal Gov. John Kasich’s administration.

If OK’d by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation board, it would mark the second billion-dollar-rebate year, with checks expected to be sent to recipients in October.

Additional funds will be used to provide grants to improve workplace safety, train firefighters and increase health and wellness programming.

“To the employers across Ohio, you’ve got a big chunk of money coming back to you,” Kasich said today. “Some will be smaller, some will be larger. Local governments will get money back, and it’s always great to be in a government that can respond and help the folks we were elected to serve.”

If Kasich announced tomorrow that he was going to use the savings from Workers Compensation to pass out $100 bills to all who refuse to work, then the left wingers would have no problem with this.
