Roll Call of Permanent Income Tax Bill Madigan Passed 72-45

Here is the roll call of the income and sales tax hike bill, Senate Bill 9:

The 32% income tax hike bill garnered 15 Republican votes. Since 60 were required for passage, the legislation could not have passed without GOP votes.  Locally, only House Floor Leader Steve Andersson, who represents Sun City, voted in favor of the bill.


Roll Call of Permanent Income Tax Bill Madigan Passed 72-45 — 15 Comments

  1. Andersson must be defeated!

    Durkin must be replaced!

    Here is what Durkin said about Andersson: “Representative Andersson, although only a sophomore legislator, has earned the confidence and respect of his colleagues to serve in this important role on our leadership team.”

    Andersson has insulted every Republican in the State!

  2. You can’t fix a spending problem with more money.

    The Dems will just use the extra money to spend even more, and they’ll be coming back for another tax increase in a couple of years.

  3. This is juat another reason that letting tax payers vote on taxation, levies, and borrowing is so important to get legislation passed.

    A 2/3 vote should be part of the legislation, so a clear majority agrees.

  4. Cue the “I’m leaving Illinois” people.

    My bro in law left to go to Indiana and found out the aggregate tax was higher due to county taxes.

    Sour grapes make the best wine.

  5. The system will work as the Governor will veto this Chicago machine tax increase.

    And we will be back where we started.

    My guess is it won’t be long before large companies start moving their HQ’s out of this state of dysfunction.

    Any state rep that voted for this without corresponding cuts in spending should be voted out.

    And term limits would be great, but that will never happen either.

  6. There are companies all over Illinois who have wanted to expand here due to all our natural advantages.

    None are going to as long as liberal Democrats continue these destructive policies(tes, idiot RINO’s, you’re included in this category).

    Every owner we know is moving to offshore their local profits to friendlier states and then expand there.

    Many are shrinking their exposure to corrupt Illinois.

    Sad days for a mighty state.

  7. Priest, your characterization of RINOs is an insult to idiots.
    Destruction of property value creates magnificent opportunities for insider ministers to leverage OPM (govt. non-recourse loans)to purchase bulk property bundles at pennies-on-dollar during next (self-engendered) Illinois financial crisis.

    Even idiots would be smart enough to position themselves to take advantage of the impending opportunity.

  8. HA!

    I bow to my incredibly insightful sister in arms observation…

    You are correct ma’am.

  9. This post is about Senate Bill 9 (SB 9) in the 100th General Assembly, which is the “Revenue” portion of the budget.

    The “Spending” portion of the budget is Senate Bill 6 (SB 6).


    To date, SB 9 has gone through the following iterations:

    Initial Filing – January 11, 2017 – 222 pages

    Senate Committee Amendment 1 – January 24, 2017 – 492 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 2 – January 24, 2017 – 492 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 3 – March 2, 2017 – 476 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 4 – May 17, 2017 – 503 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 5 – May 17, 2017 – 1 page

    Senate Floor Amendment 6 – May 22, 2017 – 482 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 7 – May 23, 2017 – 7 pages

    Senate Floor Amendment 8 – May 23, 2017 – 1 page

    On May 23, 2017 the bill passed the Senate with a vote of 32-26-0.

    House Committee Amendment 1 – May 26, 2017 – 49 pages

    House Floor Amendment 2 – June 29, 2017 – 584 pages

    House Floor Amendment 3 – July 2, 2017 – 583 pages

    On July 2 the bill passed the House with a vote of 72 – 45 – 0.


    One Sunday July 2, 2017, the 583 page House Floor Amendment 3 was filed, and a roll call vote was taken in the House.

    Will put in a subsequent comment a video of Rep Jeanne Ives’ concerns about that Amendment.


    SB 9 is now in the Senate for a concurrence vote (to vote on the changes made by the House subsequent to the last Senate vote.

    Illinois Senate Democrats account

    The Illinois Senate Democrats will be in session tomorrow, Tuesday July 4, 2017.


    What a farce.

    The Democrats could have sent whatever budget they wanted to the Governor for the past two years.

    They have a majority in the House and Senate.

    Now they are meeting on the 4th of July….why?

    Hoping some Republicans won’t show up so they can use that against them in the 2018 campaign?

    Hoping to score brownie points with those wanting a budget passed?
