(Chicago, IL) — Under a bill heading to the Illinois House, a presidential candidate would have to release his or her taxes to qualify for a spot on the ballot in Illinois. The Illinois Senate voted mostly along party lines yesterday to pass the bill that would require presidential candidates to reveal five years of their tax returns to qualify for the ballot in Illinois. The sponsor, Senator Dan Biss, says releasing taxes would give voters vital information about a candidate that could help them make their voting decision. Opponents say the idea would keep qualified candidates from running. The bill now moves to the House.
