DIGEST OF INTRODUCED BILL
Worker's compensation awards and travel reimbursement. Requires the employer to pay reasonable travel expenses to the employee from the place the employee begins travel (either the employee's residence or place of employment) to the place of treatment, when the employer requests or requires the employee to submit to treatment outside the employee's county of employment. Increases from two to five years the period in which an award may be modified. Eliminates the one year period to file applications for increased permanent partial impairment.
