Statement from Gov. Blagojevich on property tax override vote          Send a link to a friend

[October 04, 2007]  SPRINGFIELD -- The following statement from Gov. Rod R. Blagojevich was released Wednesday regarding the Illinois House of Representatives' vote to override his amendatory veto that strengthens property tax relief:

"I'm disappointed that today the Illinois House chose to take property tax relief away from homeowners in Cook County. The House had an opportunity to extend the 7 percent property tax cap that we passed three years ago. Instead, they voted to take it away and continue a system that places too much of the property tax burden on homeowners while it protects commercial property owners and real estate developers."
