Gov. Pritzker Says Adopting Stringent Emission Standards Isn't Right for Illinois

A recently floated bill in the General Assembly could have brought California emission standards for vehicles to Illinois.


One part of that law keeps some diesel vehicles off the road if they are older than 2010. The Illinois Farm Bureau and others quickly opposed the idea and the hearing on the bill was cancelled. Governor JB Pritzker says that adopting those stringent standards isn’t right for Illinois.



The Farm Bureau, Trucking groups and others hailed the quick pullback of the bill from a committee hearing.
