State Senator Don Harmon on the Fair Tax

SPRINGFIELD – State Senator Don Harmon (D-Oak Park) issued the following statement on the Fair Tax amendment:

“The Fair Tax has gained significant momentum in the last year, and I’m committed to continuing to work to get this passed in the fall veto session later this year.

“Our caucus remains committed to this issue as we believe that the Fair Tax is the best way to provide tax relief to the middle class while protecting our priorities.

“This is something I’m committed to, something that we knew would be hard this year. We have exceeded expectations and will continue to work on this issue until the Fair Tax is passed.”

Senate President John Cullerton (D-Chicago) added the following:

“This is smart policy based on fundamental principles of fairness. Senator Harmon has been tireless in his efforts to build support for the plan. I expect those efforts to continue until we achieve a more modern and progressive system for the state.” VFP
