Illinois’ middle class is the lifeblood of the state

However, due to its poorly- designed revenue system, Illinois has been unable to consistently provide support for programs that strengthen communities – education, human services, healthcare and public safety. A fair tax will help stabilize our state’s finances – building the strong communities we all need while providing middle class and working Illinois families the break they deserve. Lawmakers must support Illinois’ middle and working class by passing a fair tax now.

Help us spread the word

The status quo isn’t fair to most Illinoisans, which is why an overwhelming number of them support a fair tax structure. Help get the word out to concerned citizens willing to join the fight.

The Responsible Budget Coalition is a nonpartisan statewide Coalition made up of over 300 member organizations. We are united by three common principles including adequate revenue to support state priorities, no cuts to vital programs and services, and fairness in raising revenue. The RBC does not intervene or participate in contested elections for public office, nor does it support, endorse or oppose any candidates for office, nor do the endorsements or electoral activities of our member organizations reflect or suggest a position with respect to a contested election on behalf of the RBC. As a coalition, we engage and work with public officials on a bipartisan basis to enact our core principles.
