Issues

Workers' compensation reform

In late 2010, Reichner complimented the work done by the Labor-Management Advisory Council to reform workers’ compensation in Montana. However, he added the House Republican caucus wanted “to take a bigger bite of the apple.”

“We are not discouraging any bills at this moment,” he said. “We appreciate what they (LMAC) have done.”

Reichner said Montana had the highest workers’ compensation rates in the country and deeper cuts need to be made to lure new businesses and help current employers. He said the caucus would take what was good in the LMAC bill and blend it into a new proposal.[2]

Reichner introduced HB 334 in the 2011 session. The bill, which reduced workers' compensation rates by 20 percent, saw bipartisan support in both houses and was signed into law on April 12, 2011.[3][4]

Reichner told the Daily Inter Lake that he hoped to support oil and gas development, Medicaid reform, and reduced property tax rates if elected to a third term.[5]
