California passes bill reforming workers' compensation insurance

The governor of California recently signed a bill overhauling the state's workers' compensation program, which has a budget of over $17 billion. The bill would increase the payments of disability benefits to workers permanently disabled by job injuries by $740 million per year, and would give companies a break on workers' compensation insurance premiums. California's governor personally lobbied hard for the bill, pleading directly with legislators and supplying an extra $120 million per year for permanently disabled workers. The bill passed the California legislature on the last night of its session.
