Barickman votes no to Pritzker income tax hike

State Senator Jason Barickman (R-Bloomington) released the following statement after he voted against Gov. Pritzker’s graduated income tax plan in the Illinois Senate Executive Committee:

“This plan provides absolutely no protection for middle income families. We’ve already seen these proposed rates change during the spring session, and common sense says that these rates will probably go up every time the state is having trouble paying its bills. To be clear, I voted against a $3.4 billion income tax hike that will kill job growth and further weaken our state’s economy. In reality, this is very likely the first step in a number of punishing tax hikes moving forward.”
