Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Environmental Protection Act. Provides that, on and after January 1, 2018, no person may knowingly cause or allow sale at wholesale or retail of a coal tar sealant product. Provides that, on and after July 1, 2019, no person may knowingly cause or allow application of a coal tar sealant product on any surface, except for highway structures, in the State of Illinois including but not limited to a driveway, parking area, playground, sidewalk, bike trail or roadway. Provides that a city or county may adopt ordinances providing for enforcement of the requirements of this provision. Provides that any violation of this provision shall be enforceable by administrative citation. Provides that penalties for violation may not exceed $1,000 for the first offense and $5,000 for the second offense. Effective immediately.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that on and after January 1, 2018, no person may knowingly cause or allow sale at wholesale or retail of a high polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) sealant product. Provides that on and after July 1, 2019, no person may knowingly cause or allow application of a high PAH sealant product on any surface, except for highway structures, in the State. Defines "high PAH sealant product". Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note, House Committee Amendment No. 1 (Illinois Environmental Protection Agency)
 HB 2958 (H-AM 1) would not have any fiscal impact on the Illinois EPA, as any fines collected under the bill would certainly be offset by the costs to the Agency enforcing the bill.
