How you can help
Contact your state representative
It’s a good idea to contact your Illinois State House representative. To find out their contact information, you can use this interactive map.
Tell your representative why you think our state needs this bill. If you can, try to persuade them to become a co-sponsor. The more co-sponsors a bill has, the more likely it would be to pass.
But even if your rep doesn’t want to co-sponsor the Electric Vehicle Charging Act, knowing that their constituents want it to pass will help the bill get through the House.
