State Rep. Mike Tryon (R-Crystal Lake) is introducing legislation today that will apply the Illinois income tax to visiting legislators from Wisconsin and Indiana.
Noting that the Democrats passed legislation to “close corporate loopholes” which resulted in Illinois taxing planes while they were flying over Illinois, incomes of movie stars filming in Illinois, baseball and football team players on Illinois fields,
“I think that ought to apply to visiting Democrats.”
“What’s good enough for the Green Bay Packers is good enough for the Wisconsin legislature.”
Of course, there’s no chance that House Speaker Mike Madigan would allow such a bill to be considered, don’t be surprise if you hear of Tryon’s bill introduction on radio and TV.
