WASHINGTON: Initiative 1082 makes it on the November ballot

Workers’ Comp 

Vigilant and other supporters of Initiative 1082, a measure to allow private insurers to compete with the Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) in the workers’ comp market, have successfully gathered 340,000 signatures, making it highly likely I-1082 will appear on the ballot in November for voter approval.  Currently, L&I is the sole provider of workers’ compensation coverage in Washington State. For more information about Initiative 1082 or how you can support it, contact Nancy Dicus in Vigilant’s Everett Regional office at 1-800-733-8620.
