GURNEE – State Representative Sheri Jesiel (R-Winthrop Harbor) has joined a number of her colleagues in the Illinois House to support House Resolution 1276. The resolution, which has over 40 sponsors so far, calls for members to oppose Senate Bill 16, which seeks to shift education pension costs from the state to local schools. The effect of which would lead to even higher property taxes as school boards seek to meet the demands of higher funding needs.
“For several years now the state has been delinquent in its obligation to the pension system,” said Jesiel. “Instead of focusing on managing budgets more responsibly, the state is once again trying to pass the burden on to local property taxpayers. Residents should not be forced to sacrifice more of their hard earned paychecks because of the failings of political leaders.”
