Illinois Mayors Push Not To Get Cut From State Budget
(Springfield, IL) — It’s not that mayors across Illinois want more money from Springfield. It’s that they don’t want to get less. The mayors are driving a new social media platform, ProtectMyTown, which they say will help lawmakers see what local government is doing with the money the comes back from Springfield. The state collects just over a billion dollars in sales tax money for local governments, but there’s been talk at the statehouse about keeping more of that money to pay for the state’s needs.
