WHICH IF YOU READ FITS, YOU KNEW ALREADY
FITSNews – September 19, 2007 – S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford will hold a press conference tomorrow announcing that his office will now require South Carolina’s workers’ compensation commissioners to begin implementing cost-saving American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines in future rulings.
The move, which is expected to save Palmetto State businesses millions annually (as well as royally piss off the state legislature), was first announced here on FITSNews last month. You can read more about South Carolina’s workers’ comp situation here, which we highly recommend if you’re having trouble falling asleep and don’t want to take anything over the counter.
Mind you, the burning question in all of this has nothing to do with workers’ comp, it’s all about whether or not we’re a month smarter than everybody else in the state. And of course the answer to that question is “No,” people. We’re several centuries smarter than the rest of the state.
