The Illinois Senate began taking up parts of Governor Bruce Rauner’s pro-business agenda Wednesday.
First up was the workers compensation system. Rauner and business groups say it's too costly.
Steve Hoekstra is president of a fourth-generation trucking company not far from the Indiana state line.
“The work comp base rate is 135 percent higher for me being located in Illinois as opposed to Indiana," Hoekstra said.
But Sen. Kwame Raoul, a Democrat from Chicago, says there are some areas in which Illinois might not want to compete.
