I have no higher priority than getting people back to work and creating an inviting business environment. With an unemployment rate that continues to hover near double-digits, job creation is critical. Unfortunately, Illinois has become a toxic environment for business. Our State has high taxes, excessive regulation, and cumbersome legal requirements that chase businesses to more welcoming states. After the recent irresponsible 47% income tax increase on businesses, that toxic environment got even worse. Legislators in Springfield need to work across the aisle to bring jobs back to Illinois. We need to cut taxes on businesses, reduce artificial impediments and unnecessary regulations, and view the private sector as a partner, not a revenue source. Growing our economy and expanding opportunities for new jobs is the best and most dependable way to raise revenues—growing our tax base rather than taxing, borrowing and spending and then taxing yet again to provide needed revenue for State services. If we grow good-paying jobs at home we will increase tax revenue while putting our friends and neighbors back to work.
