Charges
• Study the various insurance pools that provide workers' compensation coverage for public entities (such as cities, counties, school districts, water districts, etc.) to determine whether regulation is needed to protect members and claimants, or to otherwise protect the integrity of the pool.
• Study the method by which the state provides workers' compensation insurance coverage to its employees. Determine whether changes in organization and management would reduce injuries to employees, improve loss control and claims handling or otherwise enhance the quality and cost-effectiveness of the program.
• Conduct active oversight of agencies under the committee's jurisdiction, including a study of mandated reports to the legislature and legislative agencies. The study should consist of a review of the legislative reporting requirements of all agencies to identify areas where reporting obligations could be streamlined and agency accountability improved. The committee shall make specific recommendations about the continuation, modification or elimination of required legislative reports.
