Stateline Republicans Against Graduated Tax Rate in Illinois

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A bill making its way through the Illinois House would change the state's income tax from flat to graduated. All house republicans are standing against the proposal.

Area lawmakers John Cabello, Tom Demmer, Joe Sosnowski, and Brian Stewart joined the house republican leader at the Chicago-Rockford International Airport on Monday.They say changing the tax rate would mean raising taxes for most families in the state. The bill is still being discussed by a house committee.
