Pritzker Speaks on Possible Progressive Tax

Democratic gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker says rates for a progressive income tax his party is pushing should depend on budget priorities at the time.

At a Springfield stop Monday Pritzker wouldn’t say what the rates should be, only that they should negotiated by lawmakers. Democrats hope a tax structure they say taxes people higher rates the more they make will bring more revenue into Illinois’ coffers. Republicans are unified opposing the idea.
