Illinois lawmakers recently passed an amendment to HB 219 that would expand damages awarded in wrongful death actions by including punitive damages. This amendment could have significant negative implications for Illinois businesses, consumers, and the economy. If enacted into law, HB 219 could increase insurance and tort costs for hardworking Illinois consumers at the worst possible time.
Tell Governor Pritzker to VETO this misguided legislation and help keep insurance costs down. Please send a message to the Governor today!
