040622CM0652SPRINGFIELD – Illinoisans will now have an added incentive to purchase vehicles manufactured in-state thanks to a new law supported by State Senator Patrick Joyce signed this month. 

“The new law supports vehicles manufactured right here in Illinois,” said Joyce (D-Essex). “I have an Illinois first mentality when it comes to supporting new legislation.”

Illinoisans purchasing cars and passenger trucks manufactured in-state will have the opportunity to apply for a $25 rebate on the title under Senate Bill 3609. Consumers would have one year from the month the vehicle was manufactured to apply for the rebate.

“This is good for our economy, it encourages the purchase of goods manufactured here in Illinois,” said Joyce. 

The legislation will go into effect Jan. 1, 2023.
