CARTERVILLE Ill. (WSIL) - A new bill proposed by a Northern Illinois lawmaker bans pumping your own fuel at all gas stations.

Illinois House Democrat Camille Y. Lilly who represents Oak Park near Chicago filed HB4571 with the Illinois General Assembly on February 5, 2020.

The synopsis for HB4571 states, "Creates the Gas Station Attendant Act. Provides that no gas may be pumped at a gas station in this State unless it is pumped by a gas station attendant employed at the gas station. Effective January 1, 2021."

The bill does not say why it is being introduced.

If signed into law, motorists would have to wait for an attendant to pump their gas at all Illinois gas stations.

The bill was referred to the Rules Committee.
