Statement from Mayor Rahm Emanuel on the Illinois Senate Passage of Tax Reforms

Mayor's Press Office    312.744.3334

I am grateful to the Illinois Senate, and Illinois House for its action yesterday, for the final passage of a tax reform package that will protect jobs, provide much deserved tax relief to Chicago’s working families and single mothers and will keep the CME Group where it belongs, here in the city.  With passage of these tax reforms, Illinois is modernizing its tax policy to reflect our changing economy and to match the economic strengths that make Chicago the best city in America to start a business and raise a family.
