I strongly support Cook County Treasurer Maria Pappas who today called upon the Illinois General Assembly to increase the time hard-pressed taxpayers have to pay delinquent taxes. We support Senate Bill 3356 which would set the deadline at 13 months - extending it from the current 9 months. Adding the additional time for homeowners can make the difference between losing a home and saving it. Please contact your state legislators and ask them to support Senate Bill 3356. ...

I have a better idea!! How about LOWERING the taxes?? Cut spending, live off the same pay as average working people, term limits, and NO RAISES!!

Amen sean

Crookland no matter what...🤬

With all of the serious fiscal issues that the state of Illinois is faced with right now, how does someone introduce a bill like this? Where are the priorities?

“It provides that no gas may be pumped at a gas station in this State unless it is pumped by a gas station attendant employed at the gas station. Effective January 1, 2021.”

This bill was introduced by IL State Rep Camille Lilly (D-Chicago).

In New Jersey you cant pump your own gas. I don’t understand why it’s still that way. Wasn’t that the way it use to be here in Illinois, when I was a kid back in the 70’s?

Well. Isn't this a novel way to inflate job prospects in Illinois! Just look at the new jobs created under Pritzker 🙄

Ok so they are mandating a $13.00 --$15.00 an hour job (that will be the minimum wage) that they won't be able to fill because so many are leaving the state. UPS, USPS, FEDEX and Amazon cant get enough people to staff the jobs they have open.

The attendance have to be paid and up goes the gas prices again. And then they’ll end up being in a union up goes the price once again

I have seen a lot of people do strange things at the pump. Sometimes they don’t like pumping gas in the cold. So they take out the spigot while the gas is still coming out. Some throw out there cigarettes while still lit. The attendant is required to check these things while they work there shift. I think this is a good thing.

As if our gas prices aren’t high enough, now we have to pay the wages of someone to do what we’ve been doing for decades. Democrat lawmakers are driving people out of this state.

This is pure nonsense. In the 60s they pumped your gas as a courtesy of the station and gas was cheap. Now you have these high paying commissioners trying to create a jobs so gas prices will go up. 😮

That's just what we need, a reason to pay even more at the gas station. WTF ???

Who wrote this little piece of legislation?

How can they force us to watch their ads if we are sitting in our cars?😜

I am still pissed that I have to pump my own gas now, and I will not use a store that wants you to check yourself out, will not take the job of someone who needs it.

Why would we want that again?

Add it to the list of the other 50 reasons to leave this state!

Shoveling your own snow must be next.

I know it's still a few weeks away, but this has to be an April Fool's joke. 🤔🤔🤔

And a minimum wage of $15 per hour for the attendant, maybe I can apply then. Come out of retirement.

amen sean

😳 crazy crazy crazy!

What the hell ?? This is ridiculous

Cook County Commissioner Sean Morrison this is ridiculous. Whoever thought of this should be voted out

Weird

True dumbocrat style. Chicago clowns.

Must be a Madigan stupid idea!! He runs everything, including the governor. HE NEEDS TO GO.

WHAT?????????? That's RIDICULOUS! After ALL THESE YEARS!!! Gas station owners would have to INCREASE GAS prices to pay for attendants!!! SHUT DOWN this stupid DEMOCRAT Camille Lilly!!😡🤬

So stupid! Can I look under your hood ma'am?
