The team of four Illinois House Democrats tabbed by Speaker Michael Madigan to work with Governor Rauner on ways to end the budget stalemate is getting down to business.
State Representative Barbara Flynn Currie says they are taking his demand for business friendly reforms head on.
Democrats are seeking reforms that would prohibit insurance companies in Illinois from eliminating an insurance policy due to a pre-existing condition and would also create an Insurance Rate Review Board to prevent insurance companies from unfairly gouging consumers.
The House negotiators also plan to ask Rauner to join them and help close corporate loopholes that allow large businesses to pay nothing in taxes.
They're concerned that impacts revenue and makes it harder for small and medium businesses to survive.
