Illinois Municipalities Fight to Restore Local Funding (PDF)

Municipalities across Illinois are calling on Governor J.B. Pritzker and state lawmakers to resist taking local revenue that belongs to cities and villages and to restore the funding to previous levels that had been promised. Following the defeat of the Fair Tax, Governor Pritzker revealed plans earlier this year to cut another 10 percent of local revenue, or $152 million belonging to Illinois municipalities, to fill state budget shortfalls.
But Illinois municipalities can ill afford additional revenue losses while they struggle to balance their own budgets and provide essential services for residents. LGDF accounts for sizeable portions of a municipality’s operating budget – in some cases between 10 to 20 percent – which can amount to millions of dollars annually. LGDF revenue is dedicated for essential services, such as police and fire, road repairs and maintenance, garbage collection, and storm water and flooding prevention.
