5/29/20: Phase Three of Chicago's Building Dep. Reopening Framework
5/14/20: The Illinois General Assembly will return to Springfield next Wednesday - Friday. This proclamation outlines the issues to be covered. Any action they taken before the end of May would require a simple majority, while action after May would require a super-majority vote. Therefore, the last two weeks of May will be very busy on the legislative front.
The parameters of the proclamation appear to be broad enough for legislators to address Work Comp legislation.
On that topic:
- In late April, the Workers’ Compensation Commission announced formation of a Task Force to look at the presumption rule and named two commissioners to lead the effort. The Task Force will be comprised of a small number of practitioners with interest groups able to testify at public hearings. No members of the Task Force have been named and no meetings scheduled.
- The IMA and IRMA have been in touch with Democrat and Republican lawmakers on the WC issue and expect legislation to appear. They expect a quasi “agreed bill process” with business and labor discussing the issue to see if an agreement can be reached. We expect to have a role in this process.
CRCA will be monitoring the issues, along with our industry partners, and will keep membership updated.
5/8/20: Register today for next week's "Thursdays with CRCA" Bill McHugh will be presenting on IECC & Residential Roofing.
