THE ILLINOIS SENATE UNANIMOUSLY PASSED A BILL THIS WEEK TO RAISE AWARENESS ABOUT THE STATE’S MOVE-OVER LAW.

 

THE LEGISLATION REQUIRES THE SECRETARY OF STATE’S OFFICE TO INCLUDE A REMINDER ABOUT THE LAW IN REGISTRATION RENEWAL NOTICES…AND TO INCLUDE A QUESTION ABOUT IT ON THE WRITTEN DRIVER’S EXAM. IT’S SPONSORED BY SENATOR CHAPIN ROSE OF MAHOMET AND PROMPTED BY THE INCREASE IN STATE TROOPERS BEING HIT BY PASSING MOTORISTS.

 

 

THE BILL STILL NEEDS APPROVAL FROM THE HOUSE AND THE GOVERNOR TO BECOME LAW.
