A hearing on freezing property taxes will take place in the Illinois Senate on Tuesday.
A property tax freeze is one among several items on Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner's pro-business "Turnaround Agenda."
Illinois lawmakers are in an overtime legislative session in an effort to reach an agreement on the budget for the next fiscal year, which starts July 1.
State Democrats have put forward a spending plan that's $3 billion short. They have proposed some spending cuts and want to work with the administration in finding new revenues to tackle the budget.
The governor is refusing to sign an unbalanced fiscal plan and says he will not consider new revenue options unless Democrats go along with components of his controversial "Turnaround Agenda," like a property tax freeze, term limits and workers' compensation reforms.
Before the regular legislative session ended May 31, Rauner's property tax freeze proposal failed in committee in the Senate.
According to the Associated Press, Rauner's proposal to slash funding from a program that provides financial assistance to low-income Illinoisans for their utilities will also get a hearing in the Senate.
