Senator Bill Brady says workers’ compensation reforms passed by the Senate May 28 are a first step toward his goal of a system that protects current and future employees in a cost-effective way for employers.

House Bill 1698 makes several key changes to the current workers’ compensation system that should result in cost savings to employers and protect workers who suffer legitimate injuries on the job.

“This bill contains long overdue improvements to the current workers’ compensation system that should result in cost savings to employers,” Senator Brady said. “I voted ‘yes’ because this bill helps our business community preserve and create jobs for Illinois families, but frankly we could have – and should have – done more.”
