Illinois Senate Republicans opposing talk of progressive income tax

With talk of a progressive income tax coming up again in the state legislature, Illinois Senate Republicans want everyone to know they’re against it. They filed a resolution on it yesterday. St. Sen. Sue Rezin says voters already said no when it was presented as a constitutional amendment.

Rezin says the state’s year-over-year general fund receipts went up by $2 billion. That included money from the federal pandemic relief bill.

Sound for this story came from the Illinois Senate Republicans press office.
