Morrison Argues Against Edge Credit Program that Favors Big Business

In his arguments in opposition of the bill, Morrison pointed out that small businesses, not large ones, are the primary employers for Illinoisans. “It doesn’t make sense to raise taxes on everyone and then give special ‘carve-outs’ to larger businesses that have clout,” he said.
