A number of mayors from Metro East communities joined Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker at Belleville City Hall on Monday in support of the governor's new Fair Tax plan. The Governor's plan features new tax rates based on how much you earn.

Pritzker claims 97.3 percent of Illinoisans would get tax relief, while the remaining 3.7 percent would be taxed at a higher rate.
