Committee assignments

2011-2012

In the 2011-2012 legislative session, Bradley has been appointed to the following committees:

2009-2010

In the 2009-2010 legislative session, Bradley served on the following committees:

Issues

Workers' compensation

In early 2011, Bradley sponsored a bill that would revamp the workers’ compensation system by reducing benefits for injured workers and beefing up measures to reduce fraudulent claims.

“One of the unique and wonderful opportunities about doing workers’ compensation reform is that you get to make most of the state of Illinois mad at the same time … but to do real reform sometimes you have to do that,” said Rep. Bradley. “What we’ve tried to do is get some sacrifice on a lot of different parties, but not total sacrifice on any one party.”

The initiative is expected to limit the amount those claiming workers’ compensation can receive in wage differentials.

Among those who oppose the bill is Michael Carrigan, AFL-CIO president. Carrigan said that although there had been discussion, many issues were left unresolved.

“[We said] thank you we tried, but no thank you. So there is no agreement,” said Carrigan. “You don't partially sell a car or partially sell a home. You either sell it or you don't.”[2]

Craft brewers

In May 2011, the Illinois House unanimously passed a measure, sponsored by Mautino, that would allow craft brewers to distribute their own beer.

“(The measure) grants a limited option to Illinois and out-of-state start up breweries, defined in the bill as craft brewers, to self-distribute beer products pursuant to a permit issued by the Liquor Control Commission,” said state Rep. Frank J. Mautino.

Senate Bill 754 would allow craft brewers that manufacture up to 465,000 gallons of beer per year to distribute not more than 232,500 gallons of their own beer in that same year.

Although the measure had all of the representatives’ support, state Rep. John E. Bradley said this proposal is a Pyrrhic victory for craft brewers.

“We have several of these small businesses throughout the state, in particular in my area, and I support their growth and their attempts to do business within the state,” Bradley said. “However I don’t think that this is going to settle the litigation, which is taking place throughout the state.”

Anheuser-Busch has taken Illinois to court for interfering with the beer company’s distributor licenses.

The measure left for the governor’s desk on May 23, 2011.[3]
