Illinois Environmental Groups Applaud Vetoes by Pritzker 

The decisions underscore the governor’s commitment to “choose climate action, every time.”

Environmental groups in Illinois are commending Gov. JB Pritzker for vetoing bills this month that would have expanded nuclear power, given a utility first dibs on new transmission line projects and advanced a controversial highway expansion project. This comes after little luck passing environmental bills in this year’s legislative session, which wrapped up in May.
