We Are One Illinois

22 Jul

Sign our petition below to tell Governor Pat Quinn, Speaker Michael Madigan, and all Illinois lawmakers to act to pass the coalition-backed Senate Bill 2404 and to close wasteful corporate tax loopholes!

To Governor Pat Quinn, Illinois Legislative Leaders, and All Illinois Lawmakers:

I stand with the We Are One Illinois union coalition and demand the Illinois General Assembly and Governor Pat Quinn act to adopt the plan embodied in Senate Bill 2404 unchanged.

Our state’s teachers, caregivers, nurses, police officers, and other public employees and retirees didn’t cause this problem, cannot solve it alone, and should not be asked for more.

Rather than making deeper cuts to modest pensions, lawmakers should generate revenue to fund vital services through other alternatives, such as closing wasteful corporate tax loopholes.
