VIDEO: Unes comments on Worker’s Compensation Committee of the Whole

With very little notice, legislators were notified Speaker Madigan was convening a ‘Committee of the Whole’ on Tuesday regarding Worker’s Compensation. The witness list of who would be testifying was supplied to the minority caucus 20 minutes before the Committee began. Not exactly a model of transparency and good government. Unfortunately, the whole exercise was far more about good theater than good public policy. It’s unfortunate and I hope we give this topic the serious debate it deserves and invite everyone to the table the next time we discuss this important issue.
