POP a CAP on that TAX!

One of the big items of discussion in Illinois right now is the move to shift the responsibility for school district pensions back to the local districts, ending the practice of sloughing off billions of local pension liability onto state taxpayers.

This will become one of the biggest issues in the next legislative session. Get prepared for the fight to freeze, cap and eventually cut your property taxes.
