Rep. McCombie on Wednesday also said the bill provides relief, not a freeze. She said she agreed with the bill’s chief sponsor, Rep. Michelle Mussman, D-Schaumburg, that the legislation is a “start.”
“I think it is a wonderful start,” Rep. McCombie said. “This is not the answer; this is not the end. It’s a start to true property tax relief. That’s the key.
“It’s not about freezing taxes,” she said. “It’s not about hurting our schools or municipalities. It’s about helping us, then in turn we can help those folks. We don’t want to make decisions in the state that go to the detriment of our schools.”
