Article on the March 16 announcement by Gov. John Baldacci, the Maine AFL-CIO and the Maine State Chamber of Commerce, of a new plan to restructure the workers' compensation board, the panel of employee and employer representatives that oversees the state's workers' compensation system. The governor's bill would cut the number of board members from eight to six, and would empower the board's executive director to cast the seventh, potentially tie-breaking, vote. The changes are intended to break up a board that has routinely stalemated in 4-4 votes that have led to lawsuits, unresolved policy decisions and unfilled positions. Paul Dionne, executive director of the board, thinks the new structure makes sense.
