Breen Challenges Democrat Representative on Lack of Accountability in


On Wednesday, March 2, State Representative Peter Breen (R-Lombard) led an effort on the Illinois House Floor to defeat a measure that would force Illinois residents to pay municipal property taxes, even if their municipality does not adopt a tax levy. After a spirited debate, bill sponsor Anthony DeLuca (D-Chicago Heights) withdrew the bill, recognizing that it did not have adequate support to pass.
During the debate, Breen specifically identified oversight provisions lacking in the bill, stating that, ”This is a bill that reduces responsibility, it reduces transparency, it risks corruption, it hurts the taxpayers.” You may watch Breen’s floor debate by clicking on the image above.
