In 2011, the state lowered the share that municipalities get from the state income tax from 10% to around 6%, and now, suburban leaders from Cook and surrounding counties are asking for the LGDF to go back up. The Local Government Distributive Fund may sound dry, but local leaders say it plays a crucial role in keeping their cities, towns and villages afloat. GUESTS: Jerry Bennett, Palos Hills mayor, president of the Southwest Conference of Mayors and Ralph Martire, executive director, Center for Tax and Budget Accountability talk with Sasha-Ann Simons.
