Summary as introduced:
Workers' compensation; suitably equipped automobile. Authorizes the Workers' Compensation Commission to require an employer to provide funds for the purchase of a suitably equipped automobile for an incapacitated employee if it finds that it is medically necessary and that modifications to the employee's automobile are not technically feasible or will cost more than the funds available for a replacement automobile. The total of the costs of the automobile and of any bedside lifts, adjustable beds, and modification of the employee's principal home are limited to $42,000, which is the amount of the existing cap on expenses for modifications to the injured employee's automobile and home.
