SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) issued the following statement this afternoon in response to Gov. Pritzker’s fair tax proposal that was released earlier today:  

“Updating our state’s antiquated tax structure is long overdue. A fair tax like that proposed by Gov. JB Pritzker today will protect working families while still giving us the resources we need to invest in our state. The majority of Illinoisans support a fair tax, and the governor’s proposal is a great first step toward that goal. I look forward to working with him to pass the legislation necessary to put the question on the ballot in 2020.”
