Legislation to Permit Automatic Electric and Gas Rate Increases over next 10 years

We received an email from Michael Happ of Citizen Action/Illinois

“Hundreds of Illinoisans have written their legislators about ComEdand Ameren’s request for a free pass to raise rates on their customers.

The General Assembly will debate this issue this morning-and may vote by Friday-which is why I’ll be in Springfield this week, and I need your help.”

ComEd and other utility companies are pushing legislation that would allow them to automatically raise your electricity and natural gas bills every year for the next ten years by weakening oversight from the Illinois Commerce Commission,

He is asking for people to sign an online petition to stop this legislation:

    “In spite of changes in the way in which rate cases would be brought before the Illinois Commerce Commission, the most troubling aspects of the bill are still in place: locking in rate hikes for Illinois consumers for a number of years; and giving electric and natural gas companies higher profits. Consumers would be on the losing end, for a long time, if this bill passes the Legislature.”
