Illinois families pay the highest property taxes in the nation. In fact, Illinoisans don't actually own their homes. They're collateral for someone else's pension. State Rep. Michelle Mussman has introduced legislation to increase the homeowner property tax exemption. How would the bill actually impact property taxes? How is the bill illustrative of the problems in Springfield? Why was State Rep. Jeanne Ives the only legislator who voted against this bill? What are the prospect of a constitutionally balanced, pro-growth budget being enacted in Illinois? What would another credit rating downgrade mean for the state? Ted Dabrowski, VP of Policy for the Illinois Policy Institute, joins Dan and Amy to discuss.
