Discount mulberry mila Outlet Cabello files bill that would limit city governments with home r
ROCKFORD (WREX) “I would like our legislators focusing on how to fix the state’s dysfunction instead of meddling in the local municipalities,” said Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara.A bill introduced by Republican Representative John Cabello would restrict local governments that have home rule from imposing any new taxes or levies without first getting referendum approval.And it’s not the first time Cabello has proposed the idea. He says he originally drafted the bill in 2014, during Mayor Larry Morrissey’s time in office.”I didn’t necessarily trust the administration to do the right things when it came to taxations. That’s why I filed this bill the way it is, dubbing it home rule light,” said Cabello.While Cabello says this filling has nothing to do with the current administration, he will continue with the bill on behalf of taxpayers.”My job is to be a steward of the taxpayers dollars,
and if I see that we can find ways to make sure they’re protected,” said Cabello. “That’s what I’m going to do.”However, that idea is not sitting well with Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara who’s working to bring home rule back to the city.”I think we have put safeguards in place, so I think we’ve led by example, and I would like him to lead by example and propose legislation to the state,” said McNamara.
