Harris081319SPRINGFIELD – The City of Phoenix would see an extension on the sunset of their tax increment financing district from 2019 to 2031 under a proposal led by Senator Napoleon Harris III (D-Harvey).

“The loss of industry and the recent recession continue to have a lasting effect on the South Suburbs and other similar areas across Illinois,” Harris said. “Phoenix is one of those areas that still needs time to recover from economic downturns.”

TIF districts are important for cities and towns going through economic trouble. House Bill 2931 aims to help attract private investment and bring new businesses to help with economic expansion in Phoenix.

The TIF was created in 1996 and is set to expire at the end of 2019.
