Employers, Workers Could Save Some Cash Next Year

YAKIMA, Wash. - Employers and workers could save money next year on premiums paid to the state workers' compensation fund.

Robert nelson with the Department of Labor and Industries said the rate holiday would reduce the money the state takes in.

If adopted, the rates paid into the medical aid fund would be reduced to zero in the second half of 2007.

A hearing on the proposed $315 million rate holiday is scheduled on Monday in Yakima at the Labor and Industries' office on 15 West Yakima Avenue.

A final decision on the proposal will be made on January 24.
