Quinn Signs Nonbinding Millionaire Surcharge Referendum


Voters will get the chance to sound off on the so-called millionaire surcharge this November, after Governor Pat Quinn signed the nonbinding referendum into law.

 

The measure would ask voters if higher income taxes should be levied on residents making more than a million dollars in order to pay for education.

 

A measure from House Speaker Mike Madigan to impose a surcharge on millionaires in the state failed to get enough support in the general assembly.

 

Critics of the non-binding referendum say it’s a ploy by democrats to get their base to the polls.
