Workers Compensation debate continues

Casper, Wy – Wyoming's workers compensation system does not currently cover mental injuries such as post Traumatic stress syndrome. Some lawmakers want to change that and a legislative agreed to continue working on a bill that provides such coverage, and includes several safeguards, so that it cannot be abused. The joint labor committee will continue working on the bill and a piece of legislation to increase benefits to injured workers when the committee meets in December.
