Pritzker sent a 'ransom note' to taxpayers, says Illinois Policy Institute.

"He wants this progressive income tax, if he doesn't get it he's going to slash 1.4 billion in spending," says Adam Schuster of JB Pritzker.

(KFTK) – Illinois Policy Institute budget and tax research director Adam Schuster says Governor JB Pritzker used the budget address to send a message to legislators.

"If you don't pass my tax hike, I'm going to reduce and continue to reduce investments in public safety, in education, in health and human services, and a range of other things so I that can preserve our sunsustainable pension system," is how Schuster saw the Pritzker speech yesterday.
