Greg Bishop brings you three hours of liberty-minded talk you can't find anywhere else in Springfield. Tune in for Bishop On Air from 9 to noon weekdays on 970 WMAY, The News and Talk of Springfield. Today we'll talk Taxes, Laws and Politics and take the public's pulse on the important issues of the day!
Where do we go with this topic? How about we ask the question about the soon-to-expire temporary income tax increase? Some reports say the expiration of the 66% hike in individual income tax will put a $3 to $5 billion hole in the state's budget. What about that money saying in the pockets of Illinoisans? Does that not count for anything? Also, on a more local front, we'll talk the pros and cons of increasing property tax as a way to help with Springfield schools.
Illinois lawmakers are working in fine style to beat the number of laws they created last year. The latest concern driving. A couple deal with DUIs. One could actually change the status of cannabis in DUI cases, especially with medical marijuana just around the corner. Another could change how people convicted of DUI could go about getting their license back. A third deals with adults smoking while children are in the vehicle. We'll get your opinions on these important issues today with Bishop On Air!
Four GOP candidates for Governor take to a forum in Springfield tonight in a debate to be broadcast on 970 WMAY. We'll talk about what issues are of most important to you when going to the voting booth. Also we'll get into the politics of union endorsements, political scandals and money and how all of this could play on voter sentiments.
