OK Workers’ Comp reform being fought by secret campaign

ok worksOklahoma is undergoing an effort to replace its court-based comp system with one that would be administrative in nature and let employers set up their own form of coverage (Oklahoma SB 1062). This effort is being met with some resistance from an unknown group who is running ads against it in the papers, TV and radio.

The group, known only as “Oklahoma Works” isn’t revealing who they are, although some investigation has revealed backing from OK Lawyers. Read the rest of the story, the loophole as to why backers don’t have to reveal it, and the investigation into who is behind it over at NewsOK.
