Governor Rauner: Any Budget Must Have Property Tax Freeze

(Springfield, IL)  —  Governor Bruce Rauner’s list of budget ‘must haves’ is down to a property tax freeze.  The governor took to Facebook yesterday to insist on “long term” property tax relief “with local control.”  He doubled-down on the message after Senate Democrats approved five billion-dollars in tax increases.  Rauner says he won’t sign a budget that doesn’t include property tax relief.
