It absolutely is okay with me and in fact it makes good sense. Rudi Guilianni proved in New York that you can lower felony crime rates dramatically by enforcing minor violations. This might be news to you but people who rob, rape, steal, murder, do drugs, have warrants are not sticklers for following traffic laws or other seemingly inconsequential laws. Making MORE traffic stops is a good police…

$1.6B drop in Illinois revenue predicted next year

7 months, 1 week ago from the Associated Press

That's down from $36 billion this year

Illinois is expected to see a $1.58 billion drop in revenue if the state's income tax increase rolls back as planned.

Officials from the Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability told lawmakers Tuesday the preliminary revenue forecast for the next fiscal year will be $34.4 billion. That's down from $36 billion this year.

The drop in revenue reflects an expected decrease in the state's income tax. The temporary hike is scheduled to drop from its current 5 percent to 3.75 percent next January. Some Democrats want the tax increase extended but many Republicans oppose it.

Gov. Pat Quinn plans to give his budget address in March. The event serves as the official opening of negotiations on the state budget, which lawmakers are tasked with passing before adjourning for the year.
