CA WORKMAN'S COMP BILL DEAD: ATHLETES GET "BREATHING ROOM"
Pro athletes "won some breathing room" Wednesday in a
"bitter fight" with team owners over restricting athletes'
right to workers' compensation benefits in CA, according to
Cathleen Ferraro of the SACRAMENTO BEE. Four members of the
Senate Industrial Relations Committee "split evenly" on the
bill vote, "effectively defeating the measure." A new date
for a second vote or "additional testimony" could come
sometime next week (SACRAMENTO BEE, 1/15).
