Paul & Carolyn's “A New Start for Illinois” plan calls for:
Ending predatory tax practices. Our proposed “No Tax On Tax” Constitutional Amendment that would prohibit governments from charging sales tax (or any percentage-based tax) on taxes and fees.
Passage of a constitutional amendment clarifying that parents, not the government, determine their children’s education and healthcare.
Make “Curriculum Transparency” a requirement for any receipt of state P-12 education funding.
More protection for law enforcement. Under our plan, law enforcement (including corrections officers) and first responders are a protected class under Illinois Hate Crimes Law.
Reducing administrative agency overreach. Emergency administrative regulations and any administrative regulations that increase or create fees and penalties require an affirmative 7-member approval vote from JCAR in order to become effective.
Fundamental property tax reform by protecting homeowners from assessment increases. Under our plan, assessors may only increase property value assessments upon legal transfer of the property or a change in the property’s zoning.
