The Governor singled out Indiana, as well as Wisconsin and Texas, as states that have been trying to “poach” from Illinois since 2011, when Illinois had to raise corporate taxes. Rauner stated that he wanted to “rip the economic guts out of Indiana.” Representatives from Indiana maintain their confidence in the benefits of what they are able to offer businesses vs. Illinois.
