There is talk in Springfield of a creating a new tax on Illinois drivers, and 95th District State Rep. Avery Bourne is co-sponsoring a resolution to make sure that tax does not happen.
Bourne is co-sponsoring House Resolution 766, which voices opposition to taxing Illinois drivers per mile traveled. She says Illinois residents are taxed enough.
America’s aging infrastructure has become a bipartisan concern across the country. Bourne says the already high gas taxes, along with a measure Illinois voters passed should keep transportation dollars going towards road projects.
Combining federal and state taxes, Illinoisans currently pay more than 34 cents per gallon in taxes on gasoline purchases.
