From McHenry County Republican Party Chairman Diane Evertsen:
PROGRESSIVE TAX — WITNESS SLIP
We have been fighting diligently to Keep Illinois Flat, but it’s time to step up our game.
Today, the Senate Executive Committee will consider allowing a graduated income tax.
So, I’m calling on the entire State of Illinois to file witness slips opposing SJRCA 1.
This is your chance to have your opinion on the graduated income tax become part of the legislative process.

Witness slips are read before a bill is heard in committee. The chairperson reads the names of those who have submitted slips and if they support or oppose the bill. This information helps lawmakers decide how to vote.
