Workers’ comp changes could face Illinois Senate vote

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — The Illinois Senate could take up some lingering issues related to the “grand bargain” budget compromise. Senators were winding down to a possible vote Tuesday on changes to the workers’ compensation system. It’s one of the “structural” changes Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner demanded during the two-year budget stalemate. Democrats have argued that significant cost-saving measures were enacted in 2011 but those savings have not been passed along to business owners.
