Sen. Gillespie-sponsored law repealing the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998 now in effect

Legislation

By Local Labs News Service | Aug 16, 2019


A new law sponsored by Sen. Ann Gillespie (D-27) that was introduced with the purpose of repealing the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998 went into effect on Aug. 15, according to the official Illinois General Assembly website.

The legislation was introduced in bill HB3481 on Feb. 15, when Rep. Robyn Gabel (D-18) filed it with the House clerk.

According to the General Assembly website, the bill as introduced was designed to "repeal the Kyoto Protocol Act of 1998" and "effective immediately".

After debate, the House passed the bill on March 28 and it arrived in the Senate on April 3, and both chambers agreed to the final version of the legislation on May 22. The bill was sent to the governor and signed into law on Aug. 15. The law went into effect immediately.

Illinois legislature enacts laws through bills that can be introduced in either the state House of Representatives or the state Senate. Either chamber of the legislature can reject or amend a bill before it becomes law. Legislators sometimes sponsor "shell bills" devoid of substantive provisions, introduced with the intention of being amended later to include actual legislation.

The following table shows the full history of actions on HB3481.
