House GOP Warns Of Attempt To Move Illinois To Progressive Tax System

A group of Illinois House Republicans is warning that Democrats are planning a tax increase… disguised as tax fairness. 


A number of GOP lawmakers… including Representative Raymond Poe of Springfield… held a news conference in Decatur to warn about a proposed constitutional amendment that has been stalled in committee since last summer. 


The Republicans fear there will be a move to place the measure on the November ballot, and to sell it as a move to make the wealthiest Illinoisans pay more of their fair share.  But opponents say a progressive tax could wind up raising rates on many middle class Illinoisans.
