ACTION ALERT: IL HB2958 Amended From Coal Tar Ban to Ban Choice

from the Illinois Sierra Club:

Amendment 2 will allow local control to non-home rule municipalities and counties to regulate the use of carcinogenic coal tar pavement sealants. [The only home rule county in Illinois is Cook, and home rule municipalities in Illinois include only those with populations over 25,000.]

HB2958 Amendment 2 will allow Illinois communities to make the choice to protect its citizens from carcinogenic coal tar sealants in our environment.
