J.B. Pritzker on Corporations
State can foster & encourage business in poorer areas
I want downstate Republicans and Democrats to work together with me on a Downstate Revitalization Plan
to encourage the creation of new businesses and jobs and foster the growth of existing ones in struggling communities so they can thrive.

Raise corporate tax for education
[On corporate tax rates]: "We have only four states in the United States that have a flat tax system and Illinois is one of the four," Pritzker said. "We have to change the system so the people and corporations who can afford it,
pay a fair share of our education budget so we can raise school funding for these kids. We've really starved our schools and it's not fair to the kids or to the future of the state."
