Minneapolis City Council committee meets over workers’ comp claims

The committee on Wednesday will consider almost $3 million dollars in workers’ compensation claims. The city has already settled $9 million dollars’ worth of claims this year, most with police officers who filed claims for PTSD after George Floyd’s murder and the civil unrest that followed. This is an MPR News morning update for Wednesday, October 20, 2021. Hosted by Cathy Wurzer.
