“As Illinois families continue to grapple with record-high inflation, they have to make tough choices with their family budgets. Majority Party Democrats had an opportunity to provide permanent, substantive tax relief on gas, groceries, medical supplies, and other essentials, but they didn’t. Instead, they chose to deliver short-term, election-year mini-relief that barely moves the needle for struggling families and expires shortly after the election. Legislators could have and should have done a lot more to help Illinois families.”
