Manufacturers asking for their reforms

ILLINOIS (WCIA) -- Now that lawmakers passed a budget and new school funding formula, one group wants its reforms on the to-do list.

Illinois Manufacturers' Association (IMA) wants lawmakers to return to finish hashing out worker's comp reform. It was left out of the budget after hours of negotiations.

IMA says, after losing thousands of jobs over the last decade, only a few hundred have been added and they're starting to worry.

Illinois only added 600 manufacturing jobs over the past year while neighboring states doubled, or even tripled that.
