Yang Rohr Mobile SOS 7 8 NEW Page 3NAPERVILLE – State Senator Laura Ellman and State Representative Janet Yang Rohr are partnering with the Secretary of State’s office to host a free mobile unit event for motorists who have been unable to visit a driver services facility.

“The goal of the mobile unit is to make these services more accessible to members of our community who may have a hard time getting to the DMV,” said Ellman (D-Naperville). “An expired license or out-of-date plates can cause a lot of unnecessary hassle if they go unaddressed—people can avoid the trouble by taking advantage of this great one-stop shop opportunity.”

The event will be held Friday, July 8 at Nichols Library, 200 W. Jefferson Ave., Naperville. Motorists are welcome to stop by between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to take advantage of the wide array of services the mobile unit offers.

Through the mobile unit, community members will have the opportunity to renew or correct licenses and state IDs, update license plate stickers, and register to vote or to be an organ donor. Real IDs will not be processed at this event, and those age 75 and up need to visit the DMV to renew a license.

Questions or concerns can be directed to Ellman’s office at 630-601-9961 or Yang Rohr’s office at 630-296-4157.

Senator EllmanNAPERVILLE – The Hydrogen Economy Task Force will begin work to establish Illinois as a leader in a regional hydrogen hub under a new law championed by State Senator Laura Ellman.

“Illinois has the resources necessary to become a national leader in clean energy and hydrogen generation. It’s a matter of taking advantage of the opportunity to do so,” said Ellman (D-Naperville). “We are well-positioned for both generating hydrogen and using it as a fuel and chemical to benefit our agricultural, refinery and transportation industries.”

The Hydrogen Economy Task Force established under Senate Bill 3613 will be responsible for publishing a plan to make Illinois a leader in a regional hydrogen hub, identifying opportunities to integrate hydrogen into the economy, analyzing barriers for development, and recommending policies to catalyze deployment of hydrogen into the state economy. The law aims to put Illinois at the forefront of a Midwest Clean Hydrogen Hub and create good-paying jobs to the state.

"With climate change posing an urgent threat to everyone on this planet, it is crucial for us to move to a clean energy economy – and I want Illinois to lead that change. The Hydrogen Economy Task Force is an integral first step in making Illinois a Clean Hydrogen Hub,” said State Representative Terra Costa Howard (D-Glen Ellyn), House sponsor of the bill. “This legislation will benefit our economy and our planet. I’d like to thank Senator Ellman, as well as our colleagues in the House and Senate, for their support of this important initiative.”

Signed on Friday, the law is effective immediately.
