Report on Pat Quinn's tax idea (income tax hike for top 2% to fund education)

Lt. Governor Pat Quinn has been aggressively advocating his Taxpayer Action Amendment that would amend the state constitution with a progressive income tax hike of an additional 3% of income earned over $250,000 and half that money going to a per-pupil grant divided equally among every school in the state and the other half going to each property-owner for property tax relief.

The Illinois Leader, the state's foremost online conservative news source, has this report on which local governments have reacted favorably and put the proposal on the ballot as an advisory referendum and which ones have said no.
