SPRINGFIELD (AP) - The sponsor of a plan to overhaul the Illinois workers' compensation system says he may try again to pass it.

Rep. John Bradley filed a motion Tuesday that opens the door to a second vote. It failed Sunday in the House.

The Marion Democrat originally said lawmakers would only get one chance to vote on the overhaul. He said if it failed, the next step would be abolishing workers' comp altogether.

Bradley says that so-called "nuclear option" is still a possibility. The Illinois Senate could vote on it Tuesday, the final day of the legislative session.

The reform bill is supposed to save business more than $500 million in fees related to worker injuries.
