Synopsis As Introduced
Urges the State of Illinois to monitor and, where feasible, actively participate in all crumb rubber federal testing. Urges the State of Illinois to create a watchlist of fields and playgrounds, both indoors and outdoors that contain crumb rubber and publish them on the Illinois EPA website until the 2016 multi-agency federal testing concludes that crumb rubber is definitively safe for use as infill for artificial turf fields. Urges any indoor or outdoor facility that uses turf with crumb rubber infill used by children between the ages of 18-months to 12 years to provide proper notification to parents regarding 2016 multi-agency study of crumb rubber and the possible chemical exposure to their children due to playing on crumb rubber infill.
