Governor Quinn Statement on Trailer Bill to Rate Hike Legislation

CHICAGO–(ENEWSPF)–October 25, 2011. Governor Pat Quinn yesterday released a statement regarding the trailer bill to Senate Bill 1652:

“Hours before veto session begins, ComEd and Ameren have dropped a “trailer” bill that they claim would be a better bill for the people of Illinois. Unfortunately, this movie still has the same unhappy ending: blockbuster annual rate hikes for consumers and businesses.”

“This bill still guarantees annual rate hikes every year for the next ten years. This bill still guarantees annual profits for utilities at the expense of hard working families and businesses, which will cost jobs. And this bill still eliminates any real oversight by the Illinois Commerce Commission.”

“Businesses, homes and families will see their electricity bills go up each year for the next 10 years as result of this bill. Legislators have a choice – they can listen to the people of Illinois who’ve clearly spoken out against this bill or they can listen to the fairy tales being spun by the two big utilities.”
