SPRINGFIELD – Governor Pat Quinn today released the following statement regarding Illinois Senate passage of House Bill 3816:
“Our democracy works best when everyone has a voice. Residents across Illinois will now have the opportunity to voice their opinion on whether millionaires should pay a little more to help ensure all students have access to a high-quality education.
“An investment in education is the best investment we can make for our economic future.
“I commend Speaker Michael Madigan and Senator Mike Noland for sponsoring this important bill and I look forward to signing it into law.”
The bill has passed the Illinois House and now goes to the Governor’s desk.
