Speaker Madigan: Grateful To Lawmakers Who Raised Taxes 

(Springfield, IL)  —  The top Democrat in the Illinois capitol says the Republican lawmakers who voted for a 32-percent income tax increase made the “right decision.”  House Speaker Mike Madigan last night praised lawmakers who voted for the five-billion-dollar tax increase at the center of the latest budget proposal.  But Madigan warned there is more work to do.  The House will likely have to vote again to override a promised veto from Governor Rauner.
