What is the Governor's plans for LGDF?
Governor Rauner’s proposed budget would cut LGDF in half, from 8% to 4%. The local distribution of income tax revenue for 2015 is estimated to be approximately $99 per capita. The Governor has also been reported to be seeking immediate elimination of the LGDF payments due municipalities for the last quarter of the current state fiscal year, which covers April 1 through June 30, 2015.

Additional proposals by Governor Rauner to freeze all property taxes and take no action to reform municipal public safety pensions will greatly amplify the negative impacts that an LGDF cut would have on municipal residents and businesses.
