Amendment Senate Committee Substitute 1
Summary Replace provisions of the bill with provisions delaying the adoption of the latest edition of the AMA guidelines until the summer of 2009, to require the commissioner of the Department of Labor to study the advisability of adopting the new guidelines and make a report to the LRC by January of 2009, and to allow an earlier adoption by executive order of the commissioner if the commissioner finds that an earlier adoption would best serve the welfare of Kentucky's workers, EMERGENCY.
