Illinois House Republican Leader asks lawmakers to "Save Illinois Taxpayers"

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Lawmakers across Illinois are being asked to make a new pledge to "Save Illinois Taxpayers."

Illinois House Republican leader Tom Cross was in Quincy Tuesday to announce the plan.

It aims to freeze property taxes for three years, conduct audit to end the mismanagement of taxpayer dollars, and to repeal the 67 percent income tax increase that was passed last year.

It's something Illinois State Senate candidate Randy Frese says will put the power back in the hands of the people.

"When we turn it over to the state of Illinois they don't seem to know what to do with it that's why we end up with at the end of the fiscal year and $8.5 billion backlog of debt and Illinois is called a dead beat state, so we need to protect taxpayers," Frese, Republican Candidate for the 47th Senate District, said.

Frese is challenging incumbent Senator John Sullivan in the November 6 election.
