The tax is called the Illinois County School Facility Occupation Tax, or County School Facility Tax (CSFT) for short. The law authorizing the tax, which passed in 2007, allows school boards representing 51 percent of a county’s student population to place a sales tax hike referendum of up to 1 percent on the ballot.

Since 2007, the CSFT referendums have appeared on the ballot 59 times and they’ve passed 24 times, a 41 percent pass rate.

Senator Richard Durbin, July 30th, 2009.
“Many people say: I like my health insurance right now. I don’t want to change. I don’t want to go into Medicare or Medicaid. I like what I have. Would you please leave people alone. The answer is yes. In fact, we guarantee it. We are going to put in any legislation considered by the House and Senate the protection of you, as an individual, to keep the health insurance you have, if that is what you want. What we are trying to create are …
