On April 20, 2015, the Montana Legislature passed Senate Bill 288, making it easier for Montana’s employers to subrogate workers’ compensation claims. Trial lawyers cried foul, and on April 29, 2015, Democrat Governor Steve Bullock vetoed the business-friendly Bill. In an effort to explain to Montana residents that their governor does not understand the vital role that subrogation plays in helping to hold down one of the largest expenses for small businesses – workers’ compensation insurance premiums – Gary Wickert has set the record straight, publishing an op-ed article in numerous Montana newspapers, including the Ravalli Republic. It’s all part of MWL’s continuing effort to educate the public on the virtues and economic benefits of subrogation. To read the op-ed article published on May 23, 2015, please click HERE.
