State Senator John G. Mulroe (D-Chicago) issued the following statement on the Illinois Senate’s vote today to freeze property taxes:

Senator Mulroe on the Senate floorToday, I voted to provide much-needed relief to Illinois taxpayers by supporting a measure to freeze property taxes for two years.

Illinois residents pay some of the highest property taxes in the country. I have heard from many of my constituents who are frustrated with what seems like an ever-increasing property tax bill. This legislation will provide some relief for Illinois residents by freezing property taxes for two years.

As with many issues in Springfield, we still have more work to do to extend this tax break to Chicago residents.
