  • Chamber of Commerce urges 'no' vote on advisory referendums

    Chamber of Commerce urges 'no' vote on advisory referendums

    Thursday, October 30 2014 2:37 PM EDT2014-10-30 18:37:39 GMT
    To The Herald-Whig:

    Repeatedly, the Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce board of directors has opposed and publicly spoken against legislation that will increase the cost of doing business in the state of Illinois. We believe that two advisory referendums on the November ballot will kill jobs in Illinois: raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour and placing a 3 percent income tax surcharge on individuals who make more than $1 million.
