Generating Revenue with SB 1849
Today the Illinois House of Representatives passed SB 1849 by a count of 69-47.
IRJA Chairman Rep. Bill Black on SB 1849's passage:
"The Illinois Revenue and Jobs Alliance commends the leadership demonstrated today by the Illinois House of Representatives. With the tens of thousands of jobs and the hundreds of millions in new revenue that the passage of SB 1849 will create, our state has now officially taken the first step on the road to financial recovery. Thank you to our House members in Springfield and to Representative Lou Lang and Senator Terry Link for working so hard to get this done. We hope now that members of the Illinois Senate will act in kind."
