The magnitude of progress in this field dominates all other considerations of this survey, designed to show what aspects of these laws are in the throes of legislative revision, with emphasis on advances in vocational rehabilitation, coverage of public employees, and expansion of occupational disease classifications. This survey encompasses not only legislative revisions, repeals and amendments proposed or pending before State lawmakers, but attempts a preview of future activity.
