SPRINGFIELD, IL -- JUNE 1, 2018 -- Following the passage of Illinois SB 1737, legislation which permits sensible corporate restructuring for insurers and reinsurers, but also adds government-driven rate controls to Illinois' workers' compensation system, the AIA's Steve Schneider, vice president for state affairs, Midwest region, issued the following statement:
“We’re quite disappointed that policymakers have chosen to mix poorly conceived government-driven rate controls with reasonable, sensible reforms. Illinois already has the most competitive marketplace for workers’ compensation insurance in the nation - reversing course and putting the state in charge of setting rates for workers’ compensation insurance does nothing to fix the true cost drivers of Illinois' workers' compensation system.”
