v.
BONNEVILLE JOINT SCHOOL DIST. NO. 83, Employer,
and
IDAHO STATE INSURANCE FUND, Surety, Defendants.
No. IC 2010-014146
Idaho Workers Compensation
Before the Industrial Commission of the State of Idaho
February 5, 2019
          ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION           Thomas P. Baskin, Chairman.          On January 14, 2019, McBride filed a timely second motion to reconsider the Commission’s December 24, 2018 order on attorney’s fees in the above captioned matter.

M.H. King Co., 142 Idaho 383, 388, 128 P.3d 920 (2005).          On reconsideration, the Commission will examine the evidence in the case and determine whether the evidence presented supports the legal conclusions. The Commission is not compelled to make findings on the facts of the case during reconsideration. Davidson v. H.H. Keim Co., Ltd., 110 Idaho 758, 718 P.2d 1196 (1986). The Commission may reverse its decision upon a motion for reconsideration, or rehear the decision in question, based on the arguments presented, or upon its own motion, provided...
