State Senator Christine Radogno continues to advocate for business reforms
Senate Executive Committee Democrats have blocked an effort to freeze property taxes in Illinois, spearheaded by State Sen. Christine Radogno (R-IL).
“Illinois has the second highest property taxes of any state, and that burden is felt by families and businesses in every corner of Illinois,” Radogno said. “Property tax relief shouldn’t be a partisan issue, because the burden is felt by Illinoisans regardless of party.”
Radogno and Gov. Bruce Rauner, along with others, will continue their mission to advocate for business reforms before additional revenue is considered.
“The people of Illinois deserve real property tax relief and the ability of local voters to control their own local taxes,” Radogno said. “Sadly, until we find a way to address this problem, families and businesses will continue to leave Illinois.”
The property tax freeze -- an amendment to Senate Bill 1046 -- failed in committee with a six to 11 vote.
