Sanford acknowledges failure to prevent skyrocketing premiums

News Release - For Immediate Release
Contact: Lachlan McIntosh (803) 799-7798 

Today, we learned that Governor Sanford is appointing a task force to
investigate why workers' compensation premiums have skyrocketed since he took office in 2003. As Sanford states in his own press release:
"In 2002, we had the seventh lowest workers' compensation premiums in
the nation."
In 2003, Sanford's first year in office, premiums increased 17.3%. In 2004, premiums increased 11.4%.  This year's recommendations are at a staggering 33%. Should this year's recommendations go through, South
Carolina will be ranked as one of the most expensive states in the nation for workers compensation premiums.
Today, South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Joe Erwin made the following statement in response to the Governor's statement.  "Governor
Sanford's administration has failed to keep premiums under control. When
Mark Sanford took office this certainly wasn't a problem."
"This is just one more example of Sanford's failures -- record high unemployment, poor schools and now, high workers' compensation rates."
