St. Rep. Demmer continues call for property tax relief, says state is dodging the issue

St. Rep. Tom Demmer says there’s no relief in sight for property taxes in Illinois.

At a news conference yesterday, Demmer said the committee’s draft report finally came in around the time the final report was due. And he says the House’s Democratic chair on the task force prepared the report without putting it up for debate or approval. Demmer says the task force’s creation was tied to promoting a progressive income tax that voters will decide on later this year.

Sound for this story came through the Illinois House Republicans’ press office.
