A press release from State Rep. Allen Skillicorn:

Skillicorn Talks Illinois Taxes

East Dundee, IL –Representative Skillicorn addressed about 30 people gathered at a non-partisan forum, “Talking Illinois Taxes,” organized by Gurnee Village Trustee Don J. Wilson last evening.

Skillicorn discussed Illinois spending, pension and Medicaid challenges.

“Illinois has one of the highest overall tax burdens in the country and it’s breaking the backs of taxpayers.

“Thousands flee every year to low tax states taking their businesses with them.

“Illinois’ unfunded pension liability is estimated to be anywhere from $150 billion to $250 billion, as rating agencies continue to warn of downgrades to our credit which is barely above junk status.

“We must implement reforms now,” stated Skillicorn.

Trustee Wilson concluded the evening, “I want to thank Warren Township Assessor Charlie Mullen, Attorney Rod Drobinski and State Representative Allen Skillicorn for making tonight’s event educational and a great starting point for understanding the challenges we face together in Illinois.”

  1. if he says it needs to be changed now, where is his legislation to change it?

  2. I was wondering what reforms he had in mind but one needs access to view the powerpoint presentation.

    Really makes you think…

  3. The voters in this state just spoke – they want higher taxes.
