Illinois Governor Signs Bills Promoting Electric Cars
CHICAGO -- Gov. Pat Quinn signed a pair of bills into law on Saturday that aim to increase the use of electric vehicles in Illinois through grants and a new advisory council.
The governor signed the documents in front of a Walgreens store near downtown Chicago that has a charging station for electric vehicles.
Quinn spoke briefly to a small group about easing the state's dependence on petroleum. He said developing the electric vehicle industry was one way to do that.
