Bipartisan legislative committees are continuing their work on workers’ compensation, Medicaid and education reforms, while the sale of a state prison and the proposed expansion of gambling in Illinois face new hurdles, according to Senator Tim Bivins.

The Senate Workers’ Compensation Reform Committee, co-chaired by Senate President John Cullerton of Chicago and Senate Republican Leader Christine Radogno of Lemont, met in Chicago during the week. The committee was established in November to review Illinois’ workers’ compensation practices.

On December 8, the committee heard testimony from business and labor leaders, and representatives of the legal community, with the goal of developing reforms that decrease the cost of workers’ comp for employers while maintaining and improving protections for workers injured on the job." />
