House GOP leader worried about Democrats seeking statewide tax increase during veto session

SPRINGFIELD, IL — Illinois House Republicans are focused on the upcoming veto session. House GOP Leader Jim Durkin says he’s worried about Democrats seeking a statewide tax increase.

The Governor hasn’t looked for a statewide tax increase after the fair tax was voted down, but he has identified more than $700 million in cuts and is asking Republicans to identify more places to cut.
