The Division is accepting comment through November 9th on proposed Rule changes to Labor Code
Section 408.103 from the 84th legislature. Now, to be eligible for the higher (75%) rate of TIBs
during the first 26 weeks, a worker’s wages must be below $10.00 per hour instead of the current
$8.50. The proposed changes to Rules 129.3 and 129.11 implement this statutory change. The
amended rules will apply to injuries on or after September 1, 2015.
