This Law Summary will start by explaining the concepts underlying the Fund within the workers' compensation system. It will then move to an indepth look at the Fund's recent developments in the judicial, executive, and legislative arenas. Finally, this Law Summary will analyze and attempt to answer the ultimate question facing the 2009 state legislature: what should be done with the Fund? This will include an examination of the Fund's future liability under its current claims and the Schoemehl decision, the need for the Fund in the wake on anti-disability discrimination laws, and adjustments and alternatives for the legislature to consider for increasing the Fund's revenues and decreasing its expenditures
