The Bureau says the rate cut will save private companies about $113 million next year.

Ohio's Bureau of Workers' Compensation has about $25 billion dollars in assets to assist workers who've been injured on the job.  Last week, the bureau announced it would reduce rates that private employers pay the state.

WOSU's Sam Hendren spoke to the Bureau's Bill Teets about the reduction that will save employers $113 million next year.
