Governor Quinn wants to enact emergency rules to keep petroleum coke out of Illinois.
The move follows a recent agreement between Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan and an Indiana company responsible for the byproduct of the oil refinery process.
That agreement stops any further dumpings of petcoke on the southeast side of Chicago and requires the Indiana company to remove large piles already there.
Quinn plans to file the emergency rules this week.
There will be a two week comment period, and then the Illinois Pollution Control Board will vote on them.
