The Harrison countian says he is trying to bring the fund under some control by the introduction of Sen- ate Bill 56. The measure would re- quire any increases in compensation premiums charged employers to be approved by the legislature's Rule- Making Review Committee. "As things now stand, Workers' Compensation Commissioner Emily Spieler doesn't have to answer to anyone when she gets it in her head to sock the state's businesses," Mr Wolfe said. "It shouldn't take a brilliant economist to figure out that we'll be chasing business and industry (and jobs) out of West Virginia if employ- ers' premiums continue to sky rocket," he added. Mr Wolfe said Spieler should be concentrating her efforts on devising ways to cut the outrageous costs of the compensation program and of- fering more expedient claims service to injured workers. Mr Wolfe's bill has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
