A recent poll of nearly 1,000 Illinois voters by Reboot Illinois found the majority of respondents were in favor of letting the 2011 temporary income tax expire as scheduled on Jan. 1, 2015. If the tax were to expire, the state would lose $1.8 billion in revenue.
When respondents were asked how they would make up for the lost revenue, the majority said they’d cut spending rather than raising revenue from raising taxes or extending gambling, or a combination of cuts and new revenue.
We talk with Madeleine Doubek, chief operating officer of Reboot Illinois, about the poll's findings.
