Montana legislators are expected to vote on a measure that would revamp the state's workers' compensation system, after the state Senate's Economic Affairs Committee approved the bill. Proponents of the bill lauded the panel's decision, saying the proposal would help reduce businesses' workers' compensation costs and raise benefits for workers. The bill is being fought by trial lawyers and doctors, who would earn less from workplace injuries under the proposed measure.
