Senate Bill No. 464
(By Senators Minard, Helmick, McCabe and Chafin)
[Introduced March 5, 2009; referred to the Committee on Finance.]
A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by
adding thereto a new section, designated §5-16-24a, relating
to additional fees to employer for paper transactions with the
Public Employees Insurance Agency.
Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended
by adding thereto a new section, designated §5-16-24a, to read as
ARTICLE 16. WEST VIRGINIA PUBLIC EMPLOYEES INSURANCE ACT.
§5-16-24a. Paper transactions.
The director may, by rule as authorized in section nine of
this article, establish a fee not to exceed $5 per transaction
which the Public Employees Insurance Agency may charge to employers
for performing business transactions with the agency by paper when
the transaction could be performed electronically.
(NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to permit PEIA to
promulgate a rule to charge fees to employers who transact business
with the agency by paper when more efficient and less expensive
electronic transactions are available.
§5-16-14a is new; therefore, strike-throughs and underscoring
have been omitted.)
