Senator Sue Rezin says Gov. presented a budget that is $1.7 billion out-of-balance

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Sue Rezin believes Governor J.B. Pritzker is ignoring his constitutional requirement to live within the existing revenue amount.

Rezin says the closure of corporate tax loopholes are just suspensions of negotiated programs and tax credits he agreed to in 2019 to get Republican support for his budget.

The Illinois Chamber of Commerce made a statement saying they are opposed to the massive tax increase under the guise of “closing corporate loopholes”. They say the Governor’s plan will have a long-term negative impact on job creation and tax revenues as it produces an unfair increase on taxpayers.
