One of the key issues Senate Republicans remain committed to seeing through to fruition is the issue of meaningful property tax relief.
Republican lawmakers continue to push for parity for the Illinois homeowners and employers who are burdened by some of the highest property taxes in the entire nation. Senate Republicans underscore Illinois property tax policies will continue to drive residents and businesses from the state if not addressed. Additionally, they emphasize that if an income tax increase is on the table, Republicans require parity in the form of property tax reform in order to give the people of Illinois balanced relief.
Republicans note this is not an issue that just affects Republican districts—the issue of high property taxes impacts all the districts throughout the state.
