State Rep. Allen Skillicorn, R-Crystal Lake, has added town hall dates and events to specifically address Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s graduated income tax proposal.

“There are several contentious pieces of legislation and ideas floating around Springfield right now,” Skillicorn said. “Unfortunately, far too many of them are about raising taxes. Whether it’s a graduated income tax hike or a bag tax, I want to hear what people are most concerned about and discuss what we can do about it.”

The newly added graduated income tax town halls will feature presentations by tax experts about the impact of changing the state constitution and imposing a graduated income tax on Illinois residents.

All the town hall events are free and open to the public. Some locations may have limited seating and space. In the event of limited space, individuals will be admitted on a first come, first served basis.

General Town Hall Details:

• 7 to 8 p.m. Friday at Panera Bread – 451 S. Randall Road, Algonquin

Graduated Tax Town Hall Details:

• 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Lake in the Hills Village Hall – 600 Harvest Gate, Lake in the Hills. Co-hosts: state Rep. Steve Reick, state Rep. Dan Ugaste, state Rep. Tom Weber and Americans for Prosperity.

• From 7 to 8 p.m. April 29 at the Huntley Park District, Willow Room, 12015 Mill St., Huntley. Co-hosts: state Rep. Dan Ugaste and the Illinois Opportunity Project and tax experts: Ted Dabrowski and Adam Schuster.
