Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the MTBE Elimination  Act.   Provides  that  the  General

   sell  MTBE  as  a  fuel  additive or transport fuel containing MTBE in      
   Illinois.  Provides that the  Environmental  Protection  Agency  shall      
   adopt  rules  for  providing  technical  assistance and funds to local      
   governments for drinking water testing.  Authorizes  research  grants.      
   Effective immediately.
