Mo. House passes workers’ comp bill
Thursday, April 26, 2012
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri House has approved legislation barring employees from suing co-workers for on-the-job injuries.
The bill cleared the House Thursday on a vote of 99-47 and moves now to the Senate.
Lawmakers approved similar provisions earlier this year as part of a bill on workers’ compensation and other workplace issues, but Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed that measure.
Co-employee liability bill is HB1540
