Farm Bureau Policy Opposing Funding Stream Advances

10/05/2015 @ 8:00 am | By Bona Heinsohn

Earlier this year, the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) laid out a funding stream for its Go To 2040 plan.  To fund the priorities set forth in the plan, CMAP has proposed a quarter-cent sales tax on purchases made in the Chicago metropolitan area, which is defined as the counties in the Regional Transportation Authority service area (Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will).  CMAP estimates that the quarter-cent sales tax would raise $300 million.
