Illinois State Senator Andy Manar says that the state’s budget issue was serious before the Fair Tax vote, but now the state’s set of challenges are significantly worse.
Senator Manar went on to say that Democrats and Republicans need to work together despite the fact that Democrats have super majorities in both the State House and State Senate.
Senator Manar doesn’t think a tax increase is in the cards right now, but he did say that there are some other things they can look at to increase revenue.
There are also various sales tax exemptions and service tax exemptions that could be looked at as well, according to Senator Manar.
Senator Manar was a guest on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show.
