SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Andy Manar (D-Bunker Hill) released the following statement on efforts to establish a fair tax system for the people of Illinois:
“For more than a generation Illinois has lurched from one fiscal crisis to the next, in large part due to an outdated tax system that is unfair to the middle class. I applaud Gov. Pritzker for starting this long overdue discussion on how to stabilize our state’s budget. I look forward to working with him to ease the tax burden on 97 percent of working Illinoisans.”
