    States may bar comp for illegal immigrants

    With conservative lawmakers in control in several states, more legislation is being introduced that would deny workers compensation benefits to illegal immigrants who are hurt on the job.

    And while such efforts have failed in recent years, today's changed political climate could result in some of that legislation becoming law this time around, some say.

    Bills that would bar illegal immigrants from collecting workers comp benefits are pending in Georgia, Montana, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
