Repeal or Amend the $100 ($18 to $118) increase on TA trailer plates. These trailers have less than 3,000lbs GVW. They typically weigh less than 600lbs and include small equipment trailers used by scouting and church groups along with the small trailers towed behind motorcycles.
Vehicles up to 8,000lbs went to $151. If you applied the full weight of a TA trailer proportionately, it would be a fee of $57, not $118.
Representatives have a bill they’re working on, hopefully the Speaker will call it forward.
Is the question specific to approval only? If so, agree with Big Bad Wolf - the daylight savings time bill. Driving to work in the dark and then driving home in the dark is for the birds.
If not, what I’d most like to see is a tweak to the vape bill. Change it from outright ban to something more commonsense that won’t eliminate a ton of jobs and cost the state revenue, like limiting sales to vape shops only and 21 & up with stricter carding requirements.
With Chicago facing record low temperatures and opening up warming centers, it would be great to see a compromise bill to help the homeless and also help Chicago’s budget.

HB 3888 the ETO phase-out bill, but if not that, SB 1784, the pro-union bill. We have to do better for our environment and eliminate illnesses from this carcinogen. Both bills are scheduled for Senate Executive committee hearings tomorrow. The union bill was passed overwhelmingly in the House late last month, with 93 votes in favor.

If we’re re-opening the license plate fee increases, get rid of the big increase for electric cars. This still doesn’t look good coming from a governor from what is supposed to be the pro-environmental party. This discourages sales of electric cars. There are thousands more hybrids on the road that are also paying very little in mft. You could give them a very small bump (small enough that it wouldn’t discourage sales) and generate far more money for roads.
Going with the flow, permanent DST. I have to take medication at specific times on the dot or I get bad side effects (mainly disorientation). I hate having to adjust for the time change the week before and after the clock switches.
I would like a general ethics bill passed to include the following provisions:
1.the executive inspector general and tollway inspector general cannot be married to each other.
2.the tollway must publish foia request despite their recent reversal of that longstanding position.
3.the chief engineer of the tollway cannot do business with an engineering company if his son works for that company.
Some kind of Constitutional campaign finance reform, especially for dark money groups. We are starting another election year in a few months and really need some kind of reform before the madness starts.
