House Leadership Sends Letter to DOI Opposing Workers' Comp Rate Hike

The following is an excerpt from a letter sent to the Department of Insurance this morning. The full letter is presented in PDF format below:

Dear Commissioner Stewart:

We are writing on behalf of the members of our caucus, who represent hundreds of entrepreneurs and small business owners and tens of thousands of Delaware families who rely on those companies for jobs. The Delaware Compensation Rating Bureau has issued its filing for 2014 and its recommendation would saddle these businesses – and ultimately their employees – with yet another double-digit increase in workers’ compensation rates. We object to this rate increase recommendation and urge you to reject it.
