The Last Hurdle: Help Push Workers' Compensation Legislation into Law
Posted on: 11/19/2018

We're almost there!

Call or email your state representative NOW! Urge your lawmaker to support the motion to override Governor Rauner’s amendatory veto of Senate Bill 904.

Last week, the Illinois Senate passed a motion to override the veto of Senate Bill 904, with an overwhelming majority vote (Yeas: 55, Nays: 1, Present: 1). Thank you to all who advocated on this issue!

But our fight is not yet over. Your help is still needed.

A veto override motion is pending in the Illinois House of Representatives. If the bill passes next week during the final days of the fall veto session, Senate Bill 904 will become law.

This legislation would finally force workers’ compensation insurance companies to pay interest for late payments and implement electronic billing.

Call or contact your state representative as soon as possible!
