SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – State Rep. Fred Crespo, D-Hoffman Estates, issued the following statement after voting for the Fair Tax amendment, a first step toward a fairer tax system that would provide relief to 99.1% of middle-class families and seniors in his community:

“Illinois’ current tax system is one of the most unfair and broken tax systems in the country as middle-class families and seniors bear too much of the burden. A Fair Tax system will ensure we build an Illinois that puts the middle class first by allowing us to invest in our local schools, infrastructure, and other services that contribute to a growing economy. While more works remains to be done, this is a critical first step toward a stronger Illinois, as we’ll be able to stabilize the state’s finances while also providing much-needed tax relief to middle-class families and seniors in our communities.”
