ILLINOIS STATE SENATE DISTRICT 44: Statement by Senate Republican Leader Bill Brady regarding his opposition to the graduated income tax (SJRCA 1)
Illinois State Senate District 44 issued the following announcement on May 1.
“A graduated income tax will make it easier to raise taxes and even easier to play games with our state’s Tax Code.
I believe the crafters of our current Constitution, which included a flat tax and was embraced by the people of Illinois, designed it specifically to protect middle-income families from politicians,” said Brady (R-Bloomington).
“We have proven over the past few years how easy it’s been to raise taxes in Illinois. A graduated income tax will make it even easier and, in fact, open the door for future tax increases.
Today, I chose to stand with the middle-income families of Illinois and against this $3.4 billion tax increase.”
