Dann to receive internal audit conducted by Bureau of Workers’ Compensation next week

Columbus -- Today State Senator Marc Dann, the Democratic nominee for Ohio Attorney General, announced that he would file a lawsuit against the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) to receive an internal audit as part of a public records request.

Following this announcement, Director William Mabe, released a response letter to Senator Dann stating he would issue the audit findings next Wednesday. Senator Dann issued the following statement in response to the new developments:

“Today is a victory for Ohioans and our public records law,” said Senator Dann. “The BWC is doing the right thing by releasing the audit and I hope that we can get to the bottom of these serious allegations quickly. I will review the audit to make sure all of its findings are included and will continue to investigate these claims. Ohioans deserve to know if some employers were receiving special treatment on their rates and premiums.”
