Governor Brown Appoints New WCAB Chair

Governor Brown, who I still salute, despite his other faults, for the workers’ compensation bills he signs into law as much as those that he vetoes, has seen fit to appoint a new chairman of the Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board.  At press time, the Department of Industrial Relations website still showed the chairman as Joseph M. Miller, but according to the governor’s website, Commissioner Ronnie G. Caplane is to take over as chairman of the WCAB.

Chairman Miller was appointed by the former governor in 2005.

In that hope springs eternal, your momentarily optimistic blogger wishes the new chairman the best of luck in guiding the WCAB to just and sound decisions.  We all know that California’s Workers’ Compensation system certainly needs them.
