There are strong arguments on both sides of the Fair Tax debate. Illinois State Representative Avery Bourne says that you should have received a pamphlet outlining arguments for and against it and with the actual text of the amendment.
The tax rates are not on the ballot and the rates can be changed by the legislature multiple times over the next decade, according to Bourne.
Rep Bourne went on to discuss a rarely used tool of the Illinois legislature called a Special Investigative Committee that has been convened to investigate House Speaker Michael Madigan.
The Special Investigative Committee will have no impact on the criminal and civil cases will move forward, but according to Representative Bourne it’s crucial that the members of the Illinois legislature are upholding ethics act.
Rep. Avery Bourne was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
