East Dundee, IL –Allen Skillicorn, Republican candidate for State Representative called for the repeal of Public Act 094-0277, 2005 workers’ compensation legislation passed into law that has dramatically worsened Illinois’ competitiveness among national employers. Within 24 months of the legislation’s passage, Illinois went from the middle of the pack among fifty states to the fourth most expensive in the nation according to studies by the University of Oregon...

“Illinois is bleeding manufacturing jobs and this law is part of the problem.” Skillicorn continued, “I’ll file legislation to repeal the 2005 Blagojevich Workers’ Compensation Bill on my first day in office. Restoring Illinois’ economy is a bi-partisan issue.”

Allen Skillicorn is a Republican candidate running in the 66th State House District. He faces Paul Serwatka, Dan Wilbrandt and Carolyn Schofield in the March 15th Primary.
