Quinn Says Temporary Tax Hike Should Be Permanent To Avoid ''Savage'' Cuts To Schools

Governor Pat Quinn may be staking his legacy… and his shot at re-election… on an idea that polls say is very unpopular. 


Quinn used his budget address Wednesday to call for making the state’s temporary income tax increase permanent.  The governor didn’t dwell on the idea… referring only briefly to keeping current rates intact. 


Instead, he focused on what he hopes to do with that additional revenue… provide more property tax relief and direct more funding to schools.
