Quinn to sign workers’ compensation reform Tuesday

June 26, 2011|By Monique Garcia, Tribune reporter

Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday plans to sign into law an overhaul of the state’s workers’ compensation system, a move that will slash medical rates, set new standards in determining a worker’s disability and put in place more safeguards to prevent abuse.

The governor is scheduled to mark what he calls “historic” changes with a fly-around starting at engine manufacturer Navistar in Melrose Park. He’ll then make stops at Ingersoll Machine Tools in Rockford, Kraft Foods in Champaign and Aisin Manufacturing in downstate Marion.
