Those Holding Their Breath for Arkansas Opt Out Legislation Can Exhale

I should have noted this earlier, but anyone still holding his or her breath as to whether Arkansas might pass workers’ compensation opt out legislation during the Legislature’s 2017 session can now officially exhale. As I indicated here and here, the Arkansas workers’ compensation “opt out” bill was never more than an empty shell. The bill died in committee at the Legislature’s adjournment sine die. We’ll have to await a new legislative session for additional news.
