Last Thursday, I sent out a call to my fellow Illinoisans to sign an online petition to Stop a proposal to tax Illinois drivers per-mile!
With your quick attention and support via social media, the message spread quickly. So far, the petition has gathered over 2000 signatures!
The best news of all, however, is that Senate President John Cullerton has DROPPED his plan to pursue a per-mile tax on Illinois drivers. Together, we said NO to the Per-Mile Tax, and NO to the Government monitoring your travel.
While this is indeed good news, we have to keep up the pressure to continue to reject this type of tax. Sometimes bad bills can stay alive for a long time in Springfield, even when it looks like they are dead on arrival. We cannot tolerate this type of intrusion into our personal lives.
I want to thank you all very much for your quick action to sign the online petition and Stop the Per-Mile Tax on Drivers! Below is a link you can share with your own social media and email contacts to spread the word even more. Again, thank you for taking the time to Stop the Per-Mile Tax!
Another proposal floating around in Springfield is a possible 30 cent increase in the sales tax on gasoline. If you would like to sign the online petition opposing these measures, please click on this link:
