The deal would control business costs by spelling out the fees for medical procedures and increasing state efforts to fight fraud, but it would also increase payments to workers who are injured on the job.

Gov. Rod Blagojevich has made the issue a high priority. He says the deal "works for everybody."

Business groups still hope for future changes that would crack down on what they consider abuses of the workers' comp system.
