Duffy Pens Letter Opposing Progressive Tax

Recently a letter from Senator Duffy concerning the progressive tax ran in the Chicago Tribune. Read Senator Duffy’s letter below:

There is usually a key issue, event, or situation that motivates people to get engaged in our political system.  For me that happened back in 2007 when Gov. Blagojevich proposed a new tax on business revenues that he called a Gross Receipts Tax, or GRT.  The governor said it was all about “Illinois Tax Fairness” however, it quickly became apparent that if the GRT tax passed, it would drive small businesses out of the state.  As a small business owner myself I was so outraged and concerned about the 7 billion dollar tax plan that I had no other option than to get politically active.  Together, with thousands of other small business owners from across the state, we fought the GRT tax plan and defeated it.

Judge Temporary Injunction Against Lake Co. Election Commission Law

During the spring legislative session the General Assembly passed a law, applying only to Lake County, stripping oversight of elections from the County Clerk and turning it over to a special appointed election commission.  In response Senator Duffy sponsored and filed Senate Bill 2592, which would keep elections authority with the Lake County Clerk’s office.

As the saga continues, a recent ruling has granted a temporary injunction against this law preventing the Lake County Chief Judge from appointing members to the election commission.  

Under the current system in Lake County, election authority rests with the County Clerk who is elected, and thus held accountable by the voters.  This new Election Board would be appointed and not directly held accountable by the people of Lake County.
