In March, BIAW (Building Industry Association of Washington) filed an initiative to the people that will allow private insurers to compete with the state Department of Labor & Industries (L&I) to offer employers workers’ compensation coverage. BIAW’s initiative will bring Washington State in line with the 46 other states that allow competition in the industrial insurance market.
