As Florida continues to grow and now has passed 20 million according to the U.S. Census Bureau, Illinois is number 49 in population growth. In fact only West Virginia is worse. From July 1, 2014 to July 1, 2015 Illinois actually lost population. In the meantime governmental bodies in Illinois from local municipalities and school districts to the state government look for new tax revenue to support the pensions of retired bureaucrats and payrolls of bloated governmental agencies. When a business loses customers, the business will cut expenses and reduce staff to reflect the reduction in demand. When the State of Illinois and municipalities within the State lose population, they look for new sources of revenue to support the existing bureaucracy. Unfortunately, the result is faster population loss coupled with a further decline in revenue.
