Call Your State Representative!!
Dial the state capitol switchboard at 217-782-2000.
Lawmakers are headed back to the capitol in Springfield. As the new legislative session begins, we need to tell them WE CAN'T WAIT for a responsible budget that provides adequate revenue to fund education, health care, human services, public safety, and more.
The Illinois General Assembly must pass HB 174 now!
HB 174 is comprehensive tax reform to raise new revenue that's desperately needed to close the state's huge budget shortfall AND make taxes fairer.
The bill would raise the income tax by 2 pennies on the dollar, broaden the sales tax base, and expand tax credits for middle-class and low-income taxpayers, homeowners and seniors.
It has been approved by the state Senate but must pass the House.
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!
Call your state representative. Dial the state capitol switchboard at 217-782-2000 and ask for him/her by name.

Tell them: "Stop devastating cuts to schools, hospitals, human services and state and local governments! Support House Bill 174!"
