Rep. Martwick Passes Fair Tax Through Committee
May 20, 2019
The Fair Tax Constitutional Amendment passed out of the House Revenue & Finance Committee Monday evening by a vote of 9-6. Rep. Martwick is the chief sponsor of the proposal and testified in front of the committee.
"Martwick made clear the Fair Tax Amendment will do more to help businesses and create jobs by providing the stability and economic security Illinois deserves.
""I believe that the worst thing that we do for businesses in this state is the irresponsible manner in which we have run our finances," Martwick said, noting that increasing debt and higher property taxes are a direct result of Illinois not being able to fund its state budget properly."
