We should immediately end the practice of corporate welfare, in which large corporations are given tax incentives and subsidies to come to Illinois. We need to stop giving an unfair advantage to companies that are already at an advantage. I believe Illinois needs to develop a fair and favorable climate where all businesses, large and small, can prosper.

Illinois already has the second-highest average effective property tax rate in the U.S. I therefore support a 5-year freeze on all property taxes while we achieve solvency.

You should have a veto when your representatives want to raise taxes. All tax increases should be passed only after a 2/3 referendum.

Illinois has too much government. We have more local districts than any other state, including large populous states such as Texas. As Governor, I will work with counties to consolidate and/or eliminate unnecessary local districts.
