Pritzker signs coal ash removal bill; opponents say more changes needed

Gov. J.B. Pritzker signed a new state law this week aimed at ensuring safe closure of toxic coal ash pits and financial protections for taxpayers should the pits cause environmental disaster. While advocates said the bill was a significant step forward for clean air and water, opponents including the Illinois Chamber of Commerce said changes were needed to the bill moving forward.

Unlike in California, requiring presidential candidates to release tax returns failed in Illinois

A new California law requiring presidential candidates to release five years of tax returns to qualify for the state’s primary ballot is similar to a measure an Illinois state senator called “the most clearly unconstitutional legislative proposal” he ever voted on. The bill passed the Illinois Senate on partisan lines earlier this year before stalling in a House committee.
