CHAMPAIGN -- State Senator Chapin Rose is calling for a change when it comes to property taxes. Rose says some in Chicago don't pay enough.

He put the spotlight on House Speaker Michael Madigan. Rose says families downstate pay more than Madigan when it comes to property taxes. He says it's because Chicago homes are assessed and taxed differently than the rest of the state.

Rose is calling on democrats to work with him when they head back to session. That won't be until after the elections.
