8 million dollars in over run cost is built into the 89 million. That was discussed at the meeting too. So, really it's 81 million. If it's under, it's under, but it won't go over. I disagree that the new schools won't last as long. Architects are committed to building quality structures, not like Ellington and Monroe which were designed to be temporary, both of which are almost…

By your own logic, would a positive effect on the teachers not have a positive effect on the students? It's all cause and effect and Newton's 3rd law. I could quote and reference many sources which could then be rebutted by your own, I'll leave the Googling up to you, I have better ways to spend my time. Something we all seem to agree on is that there is an issue and the current structure…

Perhaps UKWP is trying to equate military service with "on the teat" teaching jobs. Of course there are many big differences, especially for military that are deployed, which is part of the job. There are indeed many public school teachers that see their unionized, teaching monopoly, "part time" job as a public service that demands the same respect as our military. Not many retire with PTSD, or…

And you're making the opposite mistake....saying that each thing, when added together, becomes a total justification. That's not how you justify expenditures. You have to make the case for EACH item in it's own right. And you do that compared to what it would cost to fix it in place...assuming you do have to fix it...which apparently we don't...because it hasn't been done.…

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

2 months, 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.
