Great job – you’ve done so much good work! Now, Illinois Representatives are back home and we need you to meet them while they’re home and tell them to Repeal the 3%! The Senate did it and they can too!
Here is what you’ve done:
Almost 54,000 people have signed the Repeal the 3% petition.
Senate Bill 1952 passed the Illinois Senate last week on a bipartisan vote of 51-5 to move over into the Illinois House. This tremendous victory could not have been done without members like you taking action and engaging your legislators and telling them how important it is that we Repeal the 3%.
A House version of the bill has 44 co-sponsors and more than 67 representatives who have committed to vote “yes” on the bill. We only need 60 of them to support the repeal to get SB 1952 to Gov. J.B. Pritzker to sign.
More than 5,000 emails have been sent to lawmakers.
And more than 1,000 phone calls have been made to state legislators, and 450 of those were made from the floor of the IEA Representative Assembly last week!
Again, thank you for your hard work – we’re almost there!
