Senator Diane Pappas

SPRINGFIELD – A measure that would reduce vehicle registration fees for older Illinoisans passed the Senate Thursday thanks to support from State Senator Diane Pappas (D-Itasca).

“Older Illinois residents deserve a break considering skyrocketing inflation,” Pappas said. “This measure aims to reduce vehicle fees for older adults living on limited income.”

The measure would reduce the vehicle registration fee for vehicle owners and their spouses from $24 to $10 if they qualify or have been approved for benefits under the Senior Citizens and Persons with Disability Property Tax Relief Act.

Pappas Pay It Forward Plan

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Senate Democrats proposed Friday a more than $1.8 billion tax relief plan that would quash state taxes on back-to-school shopping and groceries and deliver income and property tax relief statewide.

“The Senate Democratic Caucus is putting much deserved tax relief into the pockets of Illinois families,” Pappas said. “The Paying it Forward plan builds on the promise I made when I took this appointment, to put working people first.”

Under their plan, the state would directly deliver relief checks valued at $100 per person and $50 per child to state taxpayers making up to $250,000 individually or up to $500,000 jointly. The plan also includes additional property tax relief checks of up to $300 that would be mailed to taxpayers. A household of four could see a $600 check.
