Poizner Rejects Workers’ Comp Premium Increases
On Monday, California Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner (R) rejected for the second time this year a request by the Workers' Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau to increase workers' compensation insurance premiums. Poizner cited the economy and said WCIRB's request for a 22.8% hike did not include "clear evidence" that such an increase was warranted.
