NAPERVILLE — How to fix Illinois' fiscal problems has been the major focus of a debate between the Republicans running for Illinois governor.

State Sens. Bill Brady and Kirk Dillard, businessman Bruce Rauner and Treasurer Dan Rutherford debated Tuesday before business groups in Naperville.

The candidates say Illinois is in trouble and needs new leadership.

All four say they support allowing a temporary income tax increase to roll back Jan. 1. That would reduce revenue by about $2 billion next fiscal year.

Rauner and Dillard say they would conduct a comprehensive, strategic analysis of Illinois' tax structure.

Brady says Illinois should impose a sales tax on services and lower rates overall.

Rutherford says he'd work with the Democrat-controlled General Assembly to reach consensus on where to cut the state budget.
