This week, Illinois lawmakers introduced two bills that would repeal the controversial Cook County Beverage Tax and further ban any home rule county or non-home rule county from taxing the use, sale or purchase of sweetened beverages by weight or volume. This tax is wildly unpopular and is hurting working families and small businesses. Take this opportunity now to weigh-in with state lawmakers, have your voice heard and stand with your family, friends and neighbors to help repeal this tax.
On Wednesday, August 23rd, there will be a hearing in Springfield to discuss these bills. You can tell lawmakers you support the bills by submitting a witness slip. All witness slips will be read into the record, allowing committee members to hear that you support the bill before they vote. We ask that you please, forward this email to your employees, friends and others in your network. Encourage them to submit a witness slip in support of repealing Cook County's beverage tax. Filling out a witness slip takes less than five minutes, but could have a huge effect on the committee's decision.
Here’s how to file a witness slip to support HB 4082 and HB 4083:
Fill out your information in the first section: I. IDENTIFICATION.
Fill out the second section, II. REPRESENTATION, if you are submitting on behalf of an organization or business. If you are submitting as a resident you can leave this section blank.
In the third section, III. POSITION, check Proponent.
In the fourth section, IV. TESTIMONY, check Record of Appearance Only. This indicates to the committee you are submitting in support, but cannot be present.
