SB9 Passed the House on Memorial Day, 2019
Now It's Time for the Governor to Sign the Bill!
We think this bill is historic. SB9, The Coal Ash Pollution Prevention Act, will protect communities across Illinois from coal ash pollution by:

  • Creating regulations that protect communities from coal ash pollution as impoundments are closed.
  • Giving communities a voice and a say in how these impoundments are closed.  Decisions made by the Illinois EPA will forever affect them.
  • Requiring financial guarantees that ensure the polluter - not the taxpayer - pays for cleanup.
  • Providing a fee structure that gives the Illinois EPA funding to hire staff and consultants to ensure safe closure.

We believe Governor Pritzker will sign the bill, but want to ENCOURAGE him to do so.  Will you sign a letter asking him to sign SB9?  Governor Pritzker needs to hear why YOU think this bill is important! You can edit the letter, or send it as written. Thanks in advance for your advocacy!
