Local reps: Graduated tax push a nonstarter
An attempt to amend the Illinois Constitution to allow for a graduated income tax based on earnings rather than the flat tax is made with almost every General Assembly.
It either never makes it to a vote or it gets crushed when it does.
But the latest attempt filed with the new General Assembly could gain traction, given the state’s $96 billion in unfunded pension obligations and more than $9 billion in unpaid bills. But local state representatives predict that it will not make it to the ballot.
