Bill to Mandate Illinois to Adopt California Emissions Standards Blocked in Committee

Friday, March 01, 2024 9:00 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Environmental groups pushed the reintroduction of House Bill (HB) 1634 mandating the state of Illinois to adopt California’s emissions standards, which would effectively require 100% of Illinois vehicle sales to be fully electric by 2035. This was met with a wave of opposition, preventing its passage in committee.

Furthermore, earlier this week, Governor Pritzker came out publicly with his opposition of the proposed legislation. He said that now isn’t the right time for Illinois to adopt California standards, even though Illinois is working its way to having zero emissions on the road. He said the strategy there is to create incentives to lead people in that direction versus enforcing strict standards.
