Gov. Chris Gregoire has ambitious reforms planned for Washington's unemployment insurance and workers' compensation programs. Bert Caldwell parses some of the devilish details in his Sunday column.
The Washington Department of Labor & Industries will hold a hearing in Spokane Tuesday on its proposed 12 percent increase in workers' compensation premiums.
Average premiums would climb 6.5 cents per hour.
The hearing begins at 10 a.m. in the auditorium at the CenterPlace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley. Written comments will be accepted until 5 p.m. Tuesday.
The increase takes effect on an emergency basis Jan. 1.
