Starting January 1, 2015, OSHA's updated record keeping rule will expand the list of severe injuries that all employers must report to OSHA.  Establishments located in states under federal OSHA jurisdiction must begin to comply with the new requirements; those located in states that operate their own safety and health programs should check with their state plan for the implementation date of the new requirements.

This morning we attended the Work-Faith Connection's annual breakfast.  500 people squeezed into the River Oaks Country to hear no less than 3 ex-invitees of the Texas Department of Corrections tell their stories and how the power of the Holy Spirit and a few people who believe in second chances changed their lives.

As we noted here, the DC Circuit has vacated its panel decision deciding the ACA shoud be enforced as it reads to NOT allow subsidies sold outside of state health exchanges (i.e., through the federal exchange).  This was a huge holding, but the odds were stacked against its survival within the more liberal DC Circuit.
