Two Referendums On Ballot

Two referendums are on the ballot in Bond County.

One is the statewide proposed amendment to the Illinois Constitution, asking if the state should have authority to impose higher income taxes on higher income levels.

According to the ballot, if approved, the amendment would remove the portion of the revenue article sometimes referred to as the “flat tax.”

The amendment does not in itself change tax rates on those with higher income levels and lower income tax rates on those with middle or lower income levels.

The other referendum is in Bond County only and is non-binding.

It asks if the county board should correspond with other county boards and municipalities, outside of Cook County, about the possibility of separating from the City of Chicago to form a new state.
