Sen. Kirk Dillard, a Republican gubernatorial candidate from Hinsdale, says he wants the state's gasoline taxes cut. According to Chicago Sun-Times:
Republican gubernatorial candidate Kirk Dillard on Monday called for reducing the state’s sales tax on gas, saying it would save taxpayers $450 million a year, or an average of $170 for every family in Illinois.
“We are overtaxed and overregulated,” Dillard, a state senator from Hinsdale, said during a news conference in front of a gas station in Lincoln Park. The state’s gas sales tax currently is 5 percent.
