Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker News
The recently approved state budget hardly makes Illinois the beacon of fiscal prudence that Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker and legislative leaders claim it is, budgetary analysts at Wirepoints say.
Illinois Rep. Nathan Reitz (D-Steeleville) voted for a measure to update the state’s contentious Fair Tax law via a 202 ballot measure on May 27. Reitz’s vote on the Senate Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment 1 allowed the bill to pass at a 77-44 vote.
Illinois Republican Party Chairman Tim Schneider said a constitutional amendment to establish a graduated income tax system in the state unfairly punishes taxpayers.
Gov. J.B. Pritzker doesn’t have to go far to get an up-close look at what he insists he wants for Illinois.
If a current Senate bill clears the House and is signed into law, Illinois will join three other states and the District of Columbia in soon paying a minimum wage of $15 per hour.
