Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney General Chris Koster today issued the following statement on today’s Senate vote on Senate Bill 1 regarding the Second Injury Fund (SIF):
"I thank the Senate, especially Senator Scott Rupp, for prioritizing legislation to address the insolvency of the Second Injury Fund. It is a challenging issue, but Missouri workers and businesses deserve continued attention toward a fiscally sound resolution to this problem. The SIF cannot endure another year without a viable funding source."
