Governor Rendell's comments about workers' compensation were reported in an article in the Citizen's Voice:
Judd Shoval, president of Guard Insurance Co., in Wilkes-Barre, a company that writes workers compensation policies in 20 states, said he was highly interested in the governor's responses to questions about workers compensation.
Shoval said the governor informed the business leaders he believes there needs to be some changes to the workers compensation system and that he plans to tackle these issues after the end of the current legislative session.
"His presentation was superb," Shoval said of Rendell. "His heart is in it. His delivery was excellent."
While Shoval believes the workers compensation system does not need a major overhaul, he agreed some areas within the system need improvement, such as the resolution of disputes and claims in a more rapid manner.
