Rep. Meier’s Statement on Madigan’s Commitment to Increase the Income Tax

State Representative Charlie Meier (R-Okawville) issued the following statement after Illinois House Speaker Mike Madigan told colleagues today he would work to help pass an income tax increase for Governor Pritzker:

“If re-elected Speaker of the House, Madigan says he will help pass an income tax hike if Pritzker wants an increase. Unbelievable, we rejected the income tax hike in November. The voters have spoken, they don’t want another tax hike. Write Madigan a letter and ask him to resign, here is the address: Speaker Mike Madigan, 300 Capitol Building, Springfield, IL 62706.”
