SPRINGFIELD- To share the success seen in DuPage County, State Senator Tom Cullerton (D-Villa Park) passed Senate Bill 3, which will spread DuPage County’s bipartisan government consolidation model statewide.
“It’s important that we continue to explore different ways to make sure government is working for the citizens of Illinois,” Cullerton said. “The best way to lower property taxes is to empower voters to get rid of all the government duplications. This is one small step we can take to reduce taxes without sacrificing the quality of government service.”
Senate Bill 3 allows counties to dissolve certain units of local government through a voter referendum.
