Gov. Pritzker Defends Plan to Eliminate Grocery

During the Governor’s budget address, he said that he would like lawmakers to eliminate the one percent sales tax on groceries.


The idea has its supporters, but it also has some in local governments worried about losing out on $350 million in collected grocery taxes each year. Gov. Pritzker says the move is all about affordability.



A law could be made to allow local governments to decide if they wanted the one percent tax to be levied in their communities.
