Policy Statement

Local Taxes Referendum Requirement

Legislation is regularly introduced in the Illinois General Assembly to grant new or expanded authority to local government units to impose additional taxes.

The Federation does not object to this grant of authority if local enactment is subject to referendum approval.  The Federation opposes such legislation that does not include a referendum requirement.
