Illinois Governor Pat Quinn visited Ingersoll on Tuesday, June 28, 2011, for the signing of House Bill 1698, a comprehensive overhaul of Illinois’ workers’ compensation system. In recognition of the transformative effect this law will have throughout the state, the Governor visited four locations (Melrose Park, Rockford, Champaign, and Marion) to highlight the signing of HB 1698 and its landmark reforms. Rockford Mayor Larry Morrissey, State Representative Chuck Jefferson and other state government officials were on hand for the signing.

 Governor Quinn also saw first hand the progress on the new MasterMill III Gantry Machine installation. On Monday, nearly 2,000 cubic yards of cement were poured for the foundation.
