On Wednesday members of the Naperville Area Chamber of Commerce head to Springfield. They're scheduled to meet with House Minority Leader Tom Cross, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and others to talk about legislative priorities. What topics do you think ought to be on the agenda?
The Naperville business leaders say their priorities are Route 59 improvements, a so-called "tax swap" and a 3 percent payroll tax increase.
A proposal to increase income taxes and decrease property taxes - known as a tax swap - gets the thumbs-down from the chamber because it would shift control of more revenue from local authorities to the state.
Chamber members also will advocate against a proposed 3 percent payroll tax increase, which they say will allow the governor to burden small businesses with paying for his extensive health care plan.
Sound like a good agenda to you? Are they covering the most important points, in your opinion?
