SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (KMOV.com) – A bill that would ban pumping your own gas has been filed in Illinois.
Illinois House Democrat Camille Y. Lilly filed HB4571 with the Illinois General Assembly earlier this month. The bill’s synopsis states that it “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 was referred to the Rules Committee on Feb. 5. If approved, drivers would be required to wait for an attendant to pump gas at all stations in Illinois.
