MELROSE PARK, Ill. (AP) — Companies in Illinois should see their workers’ compensation premiums drop because Gov. Pat Quinn on Tuesday signed a new law overhauling the system that takes care of employees injured on the job.

“We’re going to be helping the employers of Illinois, the workers of Illinois, all of those who are committed to economic growth by designing a law that will help our employers of Illinois reduce their premiums for workers compensation insurance by a huge amount,” Quinn said at a bill-signing ceremony at a Navistar plant in the Chicago suburb of Melrose Park.
