Workers Compensation Costs Decrease Due to HB 2134

In 2011, KARA was part of a business coalition that helped develop, lobby for, and successfully send to the Governor’s desk HB 2134, a law that dramatically reformed Kansas workers compensation statutes. The attached document from the National Council on Compensation Insurance (NCCI) shows that Kansas workers compensation costs have seen an overall 10% decrease.

KARA Participate in ResponsibleAg Workshop

On August 7th, the Asmark Institute welcomed State Association Executives from around the country to participate in a one-day ResponsibleAg workshop in Owensboro, Kentucky. The workshop was very successful in providing the state associations with an overview of the program’s registration and audit process, website features, audit content and preview of the auditor course agenda.
