The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York received nine responses last week to a request for information about using taxable and tax-exempt bond financing for settlements with the state's special disability fund, also known as the Second Injury Fund.

The fund was closed to new claims on July 1, 2007, as part of an overhaul of the state's workers compensation system signed into law last year by former Gov. Eliot Spitzer. The law authorized DASNY to sell debt to finance settlements with injured workers that would be backed by assessments on insurance companies and self-insured employers.
