Come on, Jay

State Insurance Commissioner Jay Bradford is dancing with the industry that brung him. He's issued a news release lauding the continuing drop in workers compensation costs in Arkansas. His news release credits it to aggressive health and safety programs produced by landmark 1993 workers comp legislation.

Right.

It has nothing to do with the fact that it has become a near miracle to successfully press a workplace injury claim in Arkansas since passage of that worker-punitive law. Few lawyers will even handle the cases any more, they're so unproductive.

Better safety. Uh huh.
