A proposal to switch Illinois to a graduated income tax appears to be dead.
The Illinois Senate did not vote on the proposed constitutional amendment Tuesday, making it impossible for the plan to clear both chambers before Thursday’s deadline.
A Senate subcommittee also killed a proposed amendment to impose term limits on constitutional officers.
However, a separate amendment to place term limits on lawmakers is moving ahead.
Supporters will hold a news conference today to announce that they have compiled enough signatures to put the measure on the November ballot.
