HB10-1009: Legislators Flub Their Votes On Pinnacol Physician Bill

Two state representatives who intended to vote against a bill on Tuesday accidentally voted for it, affecting the outcome in the House, the Pueblo Chieftain reports. By a margin of 33-29, the House passed HB1009. Two representatives were excused, but Reps. Christine Scanlan, D-Dillon, and Karen Middleton, D-Aurora, were not. Both intended to vote against a bill that seeks to add a physician representative and an injured-worker representative to the board’s existing nine-member board of Pinnacol Assurance, the state-run workers’ compensation insurer of last resort. The pair was preoccupied by a conversation over legislative matters when it came time to vote.
