House Floor Amendment No. 1
In provisions concerning the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission Operations Fund surcharge, provides that after the effective date of the amendatory Act, the Director of Insurance shall make a loan of $10,000,000 (rather than make one or more loans in an amount not to exceed an aggregate amount of $10,000,000) to the Illinois Employers Mutual Insurance Company from the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission Operations Fund for the start-up funding and initial capitalization of the Company. Makes changes to the term years for members of the Board of directors. Makes changes to the qualifications for the Board director. Provides that the Board shall reflect the ethnic, cultural, and geographical diversity of the State. Removes language prohibiting policies of the Company to be sold by any insurance agent or broker licensed to sell workers' compensation insurance in the State.
