Illinois House Bill 174 is comprehensive tax reform to raise billions in new revenue desperately needed to close the state’s huge budget shortfall and make taxes fairer. The bill, which passed the Senate last year but stalled in the House, would increase the state income tax from 3 percent to 5 percent, broaden the sales tax base, and expand tax credits for middle class and low-income taxpayers, homeowners and seniors. 


Sign the Petition. Please join us and send a message to our elected officials. Remind them that no part of their job is more important than passing a budget that protects the health, education, and well-being of Illinois' citizens – especially children.  And doing so will require new revenue.


Encourage all legislators to support, or continue to support, revenue reforms. Please share these messages with them: • Too many important priorities – from education to health and human services – are threatened with even deeper budget cuts and payment delays than they’ve already suffered. • Please push for final passage of the revenue framework seen in House Bill 174 – raising more adequate revenues for important services and doing it the right way, according to families’ ability to pay. • Kids, families and communities need a balanced, responsible budget solution that doesn’t rely solely upon deep service cuts and heavy borrowing that increases our long-term costs. We can’t wait any longer.
