THE BILL IS SPONSORED BY SENATOR MELINDA BUSH OF GRAYSLAKE, AND REMOVES THE SIX AND A QUARTER PERCENT STATE SALES TAX ON THESE ITEMS.

 

 

BUSH ADDS THIS WILL ALSO HELP SENIORS BY EXEMPTING INCONTINENCE PRODUCTS AS WELL.

 

 

THE BILL PASSED A SENATE COMMITTEE, ALTHOUGH LAWMAKERS ARE LOOKING INTO THE CHANGE CAN BE MADE VIA RULE INSTEAD OF PASSING A NEW STATE LAW.
