Illinois Manufacturers Say Taxes Could Follow Business Reforms
The head of Illinois' manufacturers says his group could back a sales tax expansion or a new service tax. But only if Illinois lawmakers adopt much-needed business reforms first. Greg Baise with the Illinois Manufacturers' Association yesterday said the state's business climate is driving manufacturing jobs to Indiana or Michigan. Baise says he could support some new taxes to pay Illinois' mountain of debt. But he's insisting on workers comp reform and other business changes first.
