State Representative Charlie Meier, R-Okawville, released the following statement after voting against Mike Madigan’s 32 percent permanent income tax hike:

“I listened to my constituents and voted against the permanent income tax hike. The people I spoke with want to see more reforms and cuts before any talk of increasing taxes. I voted against the tax hike since zero reforms came back from the Senate. I supported the Governor’s veto and the taxpayers’ wishes.”
