Senate Committee Moves Forward With Tax Breaks for Two Corporations


An Illinois Senate committee has approved tax breaks in a bid to keep two major corporate headquarters in Illinois.

 

The breaks would benefit Archer Daniels Midland and the company created by the merger of Office Depot and Office Max.

 

The measure was approved despite a disruption earlier in the day, when protestors in the House gallery who object to the tax breaks threw fake money down on lawmakers.

 

Meanwhile, it does not appear the legislature will vote this week on a measure to give back pay raises to thousands of state workers.

 

The money was promised in their 2011 contract but went unfunded and unpaid for two years. No action is expected on pension reform, either.
