Lake County families will pay an additional $443 million in state income taxes. Tax payers in every community are feeling the pain. In Grayslake, the average taxpayer will pay an additional $882 per year. In Gurnee, that figure is $950 per year and in Gages Lake that figure is $883 per year.
Ken plans to address these tax burdens in Springfield by cutting spending. We must eliminate the out of control spending by our State Legislature. The Illinois Constitution states that the legislature MUST pass a balanced budget each year and we have not had a balanced budget since 2001.
