ZERO TOLERANCE is a cop out. It is another way of saying “don’t ask me to use my brain to apply circumstances of this situation that makes it different from other situations – I am not qualified for that.”.

"Regardless of your state’s law, keep in mind that police can never compel you to identify yourself without reasonable suspicion to believe you’re involved in illegal activity.

This is going to be one very interesting trial but more sad than anything. It may be one that we see on Dateline or 20/20. I totally agree with Qcy Guy.

It isn't, per se, illegal "in your car" but it is illegal "in a public place" which is defined in our municipal code as "reasonably...expected to be viewed by others' which would hold true for a car...and especially if an officer approaches your window for whatever reason. Might they tell you to cover up and move on? Maybe....but they wouldn't be required to ignore your offense.

32 Business Services Would Pay IL Sales Tax Under Rauners's Fiscal Plan

1 month, 2 weeks ago by Reboot Illinois

State would collect over $600 million annually

From by Reboot Illinois:

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner’s fiscal plan would eliminate the Illinois sales tax exemption for 32 professional and business services.

By expanding the sales tax base, the state could generate more than $600 million in revenue, according Rauner who cited data from the bipartisan Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability’s 2011 service taxes report.

A recent Reboot Illinois/We Ask America poll suggests voters are warming to his plan, which freezes local property taxes, lowers business registration fees and raises the minimum wage, among other reforms. Broadening the sales tax would partially supplant $1.8 billion in lost revenue for fiscal year 2015 when the income tax rate will roll back to 3.75 percent on January 1. Gov. Pat Quinn wants to make the 5 percent temporary income tax increase permanent.

Quinn’s lieutenant governor candidate and running mate, Paul Vallas, said Rauner’s plan will leave an $8.5 billion hole in the state’s general revenue fund and zap education funding. Rauner claims in his campaign advertising that Quinn has cut $500 million in school spending.

Here are services that would be taxed, along with estimated potential revenue as of 2014. Below the graphic is a plain text chart that includes each service’s estimated untaxed revenue in 2011, and states that have eliminated the exemption.
