The Special Indemnity Fund was established for workers who are in- jured a second time on the job, and is funded by a 6 percent tax on payments for permanent total disability or permanent partial disability awards. Those awards have been significantly reduced as a result of the reforms which ahve been implement over the pest few years, and the fund is not being replenished as quickly as needed to fund the claims of injured workera Both bills would increase the degree of impairment necessary to proceed against the fun& Current- ly, an injured workers must have a permanent partial disability of more than 17 percent between the two injuries. In addition, one of the bills would impose an additional 4 percent tax on insurance companies! and employers' payments for perma- nent total disability and permanent partial disability awards. The addi- tional tax would be in place for 10 years, and would expire after June 30, 1991. Work continues on these mea- sures and others which will provide significant relief to Oklahoma's businessmen and women.
