BILL NUMBER: S2249

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the state finance law, in relation to the dedicated
occupational safety and health training and education and occupational
health clinic programs fund


SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Section one amends section 97-C of the State Finance Law by adding
language in subsections 1, 2, 3 and 4 that requires dedicated funding
for the occupational safety and health training and education and
occupational health clinic programs fund. It also adds language to
subsection 5 that indexes future increases to the funding to increases
in the maximum rate for workers' compensation benefits pursuant to
Paragraph (a) of subdivision 6 of section 15 of the workers'
compensation law.

JUSTIFICATION :
occupational clinics provide much needed health care to workers and
occupational safety and health training and education provides
necessary services to reduce the number of injured workers. These
programs have long been subject to budget cuts that create uncertainty
and jeopardize the effectiveness in reducing injuries and care for
injured workers. This bill would safeguard these programs from future
funding cuts and would capture the increased assessment based funds
that will be made available as a result of future maximum benefit
increases.
