Tryon Sitting on Althoff’s MCCD Tax Hike Bills

Before the McHenry County Republican Party’s Convention last month, State Rep. Mike Tryon and I spent some time talking about the bills that State Senators Pam Althoff and Karen McConnaughay had passed unanimously sent to the House of Representatives.

After I told him my reservations, he asked me why I thought he had taken the bills with the intention of passing them.

Both bills are in subcommittees.

Bills sent to subcommittees have a tendency to stay there.

Now word has reached me from a reliable source that Tryon indeed has decided to let them stay in subcommittee.

I’m also informed that the Northwest Herald has been told by Tryon that the bills are dead.

A thank you from McHenry County taxpayers is in order.  Email him at

What this means is that the Conservation District’s attempted end run around the limits set by the Property Tax Cap, while successful in the State Senate, were not favored by those in the Illinois House.

  1. Enough with the tax hikes already.

    We aren’t all lawyers and politicians with big paychecks and great benefits.

  2. Wow!

    It’s about time mike got some common sense especially when common sense is not so common!

  3. Great job Mr. Tyron.

    Maybe your decisive behavior can spread to the Senate as well!

  4. Thank you Mike…please keep it up…get Pam back to why she was elected as a Republican.

    Illinois tax payers cannot afford to keep this bloated government running.
