Things to remember about this governor -
He cheated on his property taxes by removing the toilets in his mansion in C(r)ook County;
He has used his "emergency powers" (every 30 days) for over 2/3 of his tenure;
He has only delayed the gas tax AND the sales tax on food - they'll be back after the mid-terms.
And EVERYBODY in Illinois should pay special attention to the elections in November. Just like government employees are currently "enshrined" in the State's Constitution (part of the reason we are in such dire financial straights), Amendment 1 will do much the same for certain unions, allowing them to virtually dictate to the ILGA what they will be paid with little recourse for legislators to oppose them.

As for the gas tax "reprieve", he has only delayed it 6 months ( to 1/1/23) which means there will be TWO gas tax increases next year with the second being July 1st. That will put the tax at over $0.41/gal.
Some reprieve.

Gotta keep this going - - - ;)
God help us if "Amendment 1" goes through. It is estimated that in just 4 years, property taxes would go up over $2,100 !!!
The unions that would benefit the most by this "boondoggle" are the GOVERNMENT unions. Almost no "private sector" unions would benefit from this. They would actually be hurt because of large companies like Boeing and Cat thast are leaving this state.
Read it for yourselves - - -
