Sir:

 

     Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 951 entitled:

 

"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO NOTICE OF HEARING BY THE LABOR AND INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS APPEALS BOARD,"

 

begs leave to report as follows:

 

     The purpose of this measure is to allow the Labor and Industrial Relations Appeals Board (LIRAB) the option to provide a notice of hearing by online posting on LIRAB's webpage if service by first class mail is returned as undeliverable.

 

     The Department of Labor and Industrial Relations and the Labor and Industrial Relations Appeals Board testified in support of this measure.  One concerned individual testified in opposition to this measure.

 

     As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 951 and recommends that it pass Second Reading and be referred to the Committee on Judiciary.

 

 

Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
