Why Sen Sandack (R) is Voting Against Tax Breaks for Sears/CME

by Sen Sandack

The slightly revised bill is not tax relief for all; rather tax favoritism for a few. Rather than rolling back that ill-fated increase for everyone, the legislature and Governor are selecting a couple of companies for preferential treatment... and offering indiv...idual and family taxpayers a couple bucks too. But that doesn't cut it because a week's pay was taken by that tax increase. To get $5 or $10 bucks "back" is essentially making change; not providing tax relief. Besides, we know what's coming next-- every big employer will soon be asking Springfield for their corporate relief.
