Statement by State Representative Allen Skillicorn (R-East Dundee):
“Illinois needs bold and transformative reforms that focus on lowering property taxes. People need relief from this burden and one of the key areas to focus on is Illinois’ 7,000 local governments. If we can consolidate this number down to something more manageable, it will go a long way toward improving the outlook for people in the 66th District and across Illinois.
“We also need to take a more assertive approach to reigning in our pension debt. If the Governor provides bold leadership and legislators in Springfield focus on transformative policies that put taxpayers first, we can save our great state of Illinois.”
