Tell Legislators to Stand Up for Critical Human Services, Make Income Tax Rates Permanent

Tell Legislators to Stand Up for Critical Human Services

Make the Income Tax Rates Permanent

Three years ago Illinois took action to generate new revenue by raising state income tax rates. Without further action, those income tax rates will expire at the end of 2014. If that happens, the State of Illinois will be forced to make drastic cuts—the brunt of which will be born by critical human services for people with disabilities. HB 395, HA 1 will make the current income tax rates permanent. In these final days of the legislative session, it is urgent that we let legislators know that we strongly support HB 395, HA 1 because it will keep human services from being decimated.

HB 395, HA 1 is scheduled for hearing in the House Revenue & Finance Committee on May 27, 2014, at 10:00 a.m. in Room 122B of the Capitol. Please contact members of that Committee AND your legislators to urge them to fight for critical human services for people with disabilities by supporting HB 395, HA 1.

There is no time to wait. WE MUST ACT NOW!
