Pinnacol Assurance Reverses Course

Quasi-governmental agency Pinnacol Assurance, the Colorado workers' compensation insurance fund that was on the verge of requesting greater autonomy from the state, changed course on Wednesday.

In July Pinnacol had proposed paying taxes in return for its autonomy from the state. But after holding a meeting with various business groups, Pinnacol officials decided that it should maintain the status quo. A special Colorado committee has been examining the insurance agency since August to determine whether it should receive more state control or a greater level of autonomy. Check the Denver Post for news about the latest Pinnacol decision; see links on the right side of the article for past media coverage of the Pinnacol issue.

Colorado's Pinnacol Assurance special committee web page can be found here, where you can also find a list of committee members; meeting details, agendas, and summaries; and reports and memoranda such as these statistics on Workers Compensation Insurance Market Share.
