You'd have to be living under a rock in Illinois not to have heard about the Governor's proposal to cut the local government share of the state income taxes by 50%. The Illinois Municipal League and various regional and local councils of government and organizations have been active in getting the word out to local governments about the Governor's proposal, which he made in his recent state budget address.
You can find out more about the proposal and how you can get involved on the IML website (found here). The site is open and available to anyone who wants to submit an email or mail a letter in support of LGDF. According to the IML, once the process is completed by the user, an email will be automatically sent to the Governor and each state senator and representative in that area, with a copy also going to the four legislative leaders and the sender. A hard copy addressed to the Governor can also be printed for postal mailing. You can also click this link to go straight to the email site.
