Rep. Egofske Advocates for Re-Establishing the LGDF to 10%

Yesterday, on the House floor, State Rep. John Egofske (IL-82) spoke about re-establishing the percentage of state income tax funds distributed to the local governments in the Local Government Distributive Fund (LGDF) to 10%. These funds are used to relieve some of the tax burden on residents, as well as fund public safety and infrastructure programs.

Currently, the percentage distributed is 6.16%, down from 10%, which had been the level for decades.
