State Senator Elgie R. Sims, Jr. participated in the “Graduated Income Tax: What does it mean for Illinois?” panel at the City Club of Chicago Monday. During the panel, Sims discussed how the governor’s fair tax plan would affect people throughout the state by providing needed financial stability while protecting low-income and middle class working families.


The proposal is designed to lower taxes for 97 percent of Illinoisans and only raise taxes for people earning $250,000 or more a year.
