This is interesting:

"The Illinois Constitution requires all Illinois taxpayers to pay the same tax rate. If a tax is levied on income at all, this is most fair and stable form of taxation because it allows everyone to pay the same percentage of income to taxes. However, a progressive tax plan being circulated across the state would tax Illinoisans at eight different rates, with the highest rate at 11 percent! This is unconstitutional and unfair."

From the Illinois Constitution:

(a) A tax on or measured by income shall be at a non-graduated rate.

I wonder if they will try to amend the constitution or just ignore it. They will probably just ignore it.
