Community Renewal Society is a member of the Responsible Budget Coalition, which is a large and diverse coalition of more than 300 organizations concerned about state budget and tax issues. The RBC is a non-partisan, trusted source of information on state budget and tax policy and a leader in the fight to pass a budget that chooses revenue over cuts to vital services. The individual organizations that belong to the RBC represent a diverse range of interests but are united by these three common principles:
Adequate revenue to support state priorities and make smart investments
No more cuts to vital programs and services
Fairness in raising revenue
A Fair Tax, with lower rates for the middle class and higher rates for higher incomes, will help to ensure Illinois' financial stability and get our fiscal house in order. The Illinois income tax structure is poorly designed and unsustainable. Illinois needs a long-term solution to our state's fiscal problems, now. Join Community Renewal Society and our partners in the Responsible Budget Coalition in advocating for the Fair Tax now!
