Bruce Rauner is promising to give homeowners a bit of relief on their property taxes if he's elected governor.
Rauner makes the promise in his latest ad, but doesn't lay out any details on how the plan will work or when it'll go into effect. The issue of property taxes isn't new to Springfield. Governor Quinn has promised to give homeowners a 500-dollar check by the end of the year to help offset the burden. Quinn and Rauner are in a heated race as they head into the final two months before the election. The latest poll puts Rauner up by eight-and-a-half points.
