ACTION: Support Low Carbon Concrete Procurement in Illinois, Call your State Legislators Today!

The CCURRB ACT, or The Concrete Carbon Utilization, Reduction, and Removal Breakthrough Act (HB546- Didech) is new OpenAir-supported state legislation in Illinois that has been introduced by State Representative Daniel Didech. As law, CCURBB would create a financial incentive for concrete producers doing business with the state who deliver concrete that achieves super low carbon performance. An additional incentive is created for concrete that incorporates carbon removal technologies. Right now we need to get the bill included in the state budget, which will be finalized by the end of May. So please use our tool below to call your State Senator and State Representative today, and request them to support the CCURRB Act’s inclusion in the budget!
