Opponents of coal tar sealant ban address Council committee

Members of the City Council’s finance committee on Friday heard from opponents of an ordinance that would ban in Chicago the use of coal tar sealants, a key product used to coat driveways and parking lots. The measure was introduced by finance committee Chairman Ed Burke (14th) and Alderman Will Burns (4th).

Coal tar sealants have been banned in Minnesota, Washington, Austin, Tex., South Barrington, and in some counties in Maryland, New York and Wisconsin.
