Business

By Kyla Asbury | Jun 1, 2019


Illinois state Rep. Randy E. Frese (R-Quincy) urged a No vote on Gov. J.B. Pritzker's graduated income tax proposal during Monday's House session.

"We’ve had deficit spending," Frese said on the House floor. "We don’t run our households this way and we don’t expect anyone else to run theirs this way. Year after year, we run the General Assembly this way."

Senate Joint Resolution Constitutional Amendment 1 passed the House on Monday with 73 Yes votes and 44 No votes. It will now be on the November 2020 ballot for Illinois voters to decide.

Every single Republican voted no on the bill and many businesses and individuals have spoken out against a graduated income tax structure. Critics like Frese suggest that because rates are not nailed down in the amendment, the tax will eventually become a burden carried by the middle class.

Pritzker has been adamant about his preference for a "fair tax" since running for governor last year.
