The Buzz: Serving as state senator since 2010, Sue Rezin identifies as her top priorities repealing the most recent income tax increase, adding jobs to Illinois, and reforming unemployment insurance.
Rezin contends the most recent tax increases have cost Illinois tens of thousands of jobs. A failure to solve what Rezin calls a financial crisis could risk the state's future financial stability, she says.
Rezin's solution to bring more jobs to Illinois includes workers' compensation reform. She also wants to put into place a permanent research and development tax credit.
