Governor Bruce Rauner is calling on House lawmakers to reject a 32 percent income tax increase. The Governor says the tax hike is like a 2×4 across the forehead to the people of Illinois. He urges House members to listen to their constituents.
The House is expected this afternoon to try and join the Senate in overriding the Governor’s veto of the tax hike. If that happens, the increase will take effect, retroactive to July 1st.
