Letter: 'Rain tax' is unconstitutional, reader says
Our politics has reached a new low when the elected representatives who have sworn to uphold the Illinois State Constitution and the U.S. Constitution choose to ignore it.
The Illinois General Assembly passed House Bill 1522 – the rainwater tax – and Governor Quinn then signed it in July. This law applies only to Peoria and DuPage counties. Whereas the taxpayers in Peoria will vote whether to accept this tax, DuPage residents do not have the same opportunity, according to the law.
This law does not provide equal protection, therefore, it is unconstitutional.
