Earl Ray Tomblin on Social Security

 


Privatize W.V.'s workers' compensation system

We must be responsible stewards of State finances. We did that with our West Virginia Unemployment Trust Fund. Our fund is stable and solvent. While 27 other states have had to borrow billions from the federal government to pay benefits, we have not borrowed one dime!

We took the necessary steps to reform and privatize our workers' compensation system. That effort has resulted in rates that have been reduced by more than 47% since 2005. Our premiums are now below the national average!
