javascript:; Illinois Initiates Move to Allow Local Sealant Bans | Coal Tar Free America
 

After robust media and USGS attention, McHenry County government discovered last year that they do not have the constitutional authority to pass a coal tar sealant ban.  In May 2011, the Assistant State's Attorney, Ms. Jamie Rein, said that a written opinion had been developed which denied the County's authority to pass a local ban.

McHenry County includes a community called Lake-in-the-Hills, where:
Now Senator Pamela J. Althoff, (R-32nd District), has introduced legislation to allow counties to pass coal tar sealant bans.  We applaud this action take by McHenry County, the Senator, and hopefully the McHenry County Board and others in the future.
