House Speaker Madigan: Illinois Residents Again Ignored by House Republicans’ Failure to Support Millionaire Surcharge

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. –(ENEWSPF)--April 20, 2016.  House Speaker Michael Madigan released a statement following Wednesday’s vote in the Illinois House of Representatives on a constitutional amendment to increase state funding for elementary schools and high schools through a surcharge on millionaires:

“For the second time in less than a year, Republican legislators have rejected the wishes of their constituents and opposed a measure requiring the top 1 percent to pay more to help boost education funding in Illinois.

“This proposal is not a partisan issue. An advisory question on this matter was put to voters in the 2014 general . . .
