UPDATE: House Labor Committee approves doctor choice measure

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL)-- Iowa workers could soon have greater rights in choosing a doctor when injured on the job.

Tuesday night, the House Labor Committee approved a measure that would allow workers to choose their doctor if they are hurt on the job.

The measure passed with a 10-6 vote.

Business groups claim it would let workers shop for doctors who will give them a lucrative diagnosis - a trend they say could drive companies away from Iowa.
