Anderson Statement on Tax Hike Vote
State Senator Neil Anderson (Andalusia) offered the following comments after the Illinois Senate voted to permanently increase the income tax.
“Today, I voted against a piece of legislation that would permanently increase the income tax for people in this state. It is irresponsible to pass legislation like this without first putting in place real reforms to the way our state operates. The people deserve better.
“We have to change the way our state does business. We have to put in place bipartisan, compromise reforms that will get our state back on track, create jobs and ensure our children and grandchildren inherit a state free from the financial burdens we have today.”
