Split Among Party Lines Over Making Temporary Income Tax Permanent


Democratic legislative leaders say they support Quinn’s call to keep the temporary income tax increase in place… and pledge to call it for a vote during the spring legislative session.

 

But Republicans accuse Quinn of broken promises and say he can’t be trusted with more tax dollars.

 

Interest groups around the state are split... with some fearing the tax plan will drive more businesses out of the state and others praising Quinn for trying to protect education and other programs.

 

The Retail Merchants Association says it can live with the tax hike extension if Quinn will drop his call to raise the state’s minimum wage.
