Issues

2009 sales tax measure

Chopp favored an unsuccessful proposal to put a sales tax increase on the November 2009 ballot.

According to a statement from Chopp, "To meet the challenges of the most difficult national recession in decades, we have worked hard to cut spending, make government more efficient and keep the priorities of our people foremost in mind. I strongly support this referendum to meet the needs of our people for critical care in hospitals, nursing homes and basic health. “At the same time, we must bring a greater sense of fairness to our revenue system. That is why the Working Families Tax Credit is so important – to give a break to those who need it the most. As we move forward to a stronger economy, we must not leave anyone behind and must appeal to the goodness of our citizens to care for all."

The measure favored by Chopp would have raised the state portion of the sales tax by three-tenths of a percent starting January 1, 2010, lasting for three years.[2]
