SHPA Supports Adoption of the Illinois Fair Tax Amendment

SHPA has decided to support adoption of the Fair Tax Amendment to the state Constitution, which Illinois voters will consider in the November general election.

The Governor’s Office of Management and Budget has estimated that the Fair Tax Amendment, if approved, will generate $3.6 billion in additional annual revenue, thereby helping the state to fix its structural deficit, provide adequate funding to supportive housing services, and meet its obligations to all Illinoisans, especially vulnerable citizens.

We encourage all SHPA members to carefully consider the merits of the Fair Tax Amendment and the potential consequences if it is not adopted. Click here for SHPA’s fact sheet on the Fair Tax Amendment.
