Governor’s Annual Budget Address: An Illinois Lawmakers Special Edition

Democratic Governor Pat Quinn called on the Illinois General Assembly to make the state’s temporary five percent income tax rate permanent to avoid what he said would be “hazardous” cuts to education, human services, and a host of other state services.

In exchange, he proposed offering homeowners $500 in yearly property tax relief.  This edition of Illinois Lawmakers includes the Governor’s address in its entirety, responses from the Democratic and Republican legislative leaders, and analysis from Capitolfax.com publisher and editor Rich Miller.  Hosted by Jak Tichenor.
