Lamb Champions Replacement of Work Comp System

OKLAHOMA CAPITOL -- Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb continues his push to change Oklahoma's workers' compensation system in his most recent monthly column. Lamb is not promoting further reform but a complete replacement of the current system. 

Lamb relays what he has heard while traveling the state as Small Business Advocate:

"... business owners across the state made it clear that their biggest impediment and barrier to growth is Oklahoma’s current workers’ compensation system. The call to replace the current workers’ compensation system is an issue we can no longer ignore. Oklahoma is currently the sixth most expensive state to do business. By replacing our current adversarial system, which immediately pits an employee against an employer, with an administrative model of governance we will find savings that will result in more jobs."
