    The Cook County Board of Commissioners will vote later this week on a measure to ban the retail sale and commercial application of coal tar sealant for paved roadways, parking lots, walkways and driveways after the proposal was given initial approval by the county’s environmental committee Tuesday. 

    The ordinance (23-5769) regulating the use of coal tar sealant on paved asphalt surfaces was approved by the Cook County Environment and Sustainability Committee with a 5-0 vote. Comms. Scott Britton (D-14) and Kevin Morrison (D-15) were absent.
