May 2019 ILGP Endorsed Bills

During our May ILGP Coordinating Committee Meeting the members voted to support the following bills.

HR763: Energy Innovation & Carbon Dividend Act

Illinois HB2040: Private Detention Facility Moratorium Act

HR763, which has just been reintroduced in Congress, includes the Carbon Fee and Dividend Plan which the ILGP endorsed a few years ago.  This bill is also endorsed by the Citizens Climate Lobby and the ILGP Coordinating Committee feels that this bill is a small part of what is needed to address the climate crisis, though we are concerned with exemptions for agriculture and military emissions.

Here is the full text of the bill: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/763

And a post from the Citizens Climate Lobby about the bill.
