State revenue, spending divide 41st House candidates

When it comes to finances, candidates for the 41st state House seat are divided over whether Illinois faces a revenue problem or a spending problem. Democrat Ed Agustin says Illinois lacks sufficient revenue to fund schools and other key services. Republican Grant Wehrli says the state first should lighten the expense side of its ledger before looking to bring in more money. "Illinois has too narrow a tax base," Agustin said.
