Central Illinois Lawmaker Opposes Progressive Income Tax

PEORIA — A downstate lawmaker opposed to a progressive income tax system in Illinois, but Republican Chuck Weaver of Peoria says if that’s the push by Governor-elect J.B. Pritzker, voters will have the final say.

Weaver is also opposed to both increasing the state’s gas tax and legalizing marijuana in Illinois.
