Issues

Workers' compensation reform

Bingman introduced Senate Bill 1062, "an Act relating to workers' compensation," on January 17, 2013. The bill would reduce compensation for workers injured on the job to 70 percent of their weekly pay from the current 100 percent. Workers' compensation claims would be decided by an administrative system, instead of the present court-based system.[2] Also, the bill would prevent workers who return to the same or a similar job after their injuries from receiving permanent partial disability (PPD) awards on top of the standard compensation. The National Council on Compensation Insurance analyzed the bill and estimated that it would save Oklahoma employers $138 million annually. According to the pro-market Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs, which supported the SB 1062, the NCCI total did not include the savings from switching to the administrative dispute resolution system, conservatively estimated to be around $50 million.[3] A February 2012 OCPA report had called on Oklahoma to change over to an administrative system, the way all but two states run their workers' comp programs.[4] The bill was passed 34-12 by the Oklahoma State Senate on February 27.[5]

Lawsuit reform

In September 2013, the Oklahoma state legislature held a five-day special session where both houses reenacted a lawsuit reform bill. Republicans in the state legislature settled on 23 provisions with the effect of reestablishing key provisions of a 2009 lawsuit reform bill, which was struck down by the state Supreme Court in June 2013. Bingman is a strong supporter of lawsuit reform.[6]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Oklahoma scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
