CHICAGO, IL – House Speaker Michael J. Madigan, D-Chicago, is helping middle-class taxpayers call on lawmakers to support fair tax reforms that cut taxes on the vast majority of Illinois families while making the ultra-wealthy pay their fair share. Taxpayers and advocates for the middle class will address the House Revenue & Finance Committee on Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. in the 6th Floor committee room of the Bilandic Building in Chicago, ahead of a committee vote on Madigan’s resolution calling for a fair tax as a way of easing the burden on middle-class taxpayers.

Madigan and Democratic lawmakers from across the state are supporting House Resolution 1025, which challenges Gov. Bruce Rauner and Republican lawmakers to stop protecting millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations and instead work with Democrats to enact a fair system that cuts taxes on middle-class and low-income taxpayers.
