The Senate Judiciary has adopted a Joint Resolution approving R 4286, Mediation Regulations. The mediation regulations for the South Carolina Workers’ Compensation Commission have been a recurring theme of the Collins & Lacy blogs of late.
Commission Executive Director Gary Cannon tells me if the General Assembly takes no further action, the regulations will pass on May 13.
To be effective, the regulations must be published in the State Register, which is published on the last Friday of each month. The latest this could occur would be the last Friday in May.
Once the Senate approves the Joint Resolution it goes to the House. The House can either approve the Joint Resolution or let it be enacted on May 13. Stay tuned to see how the House acts on the regulation.
