A major benefit of the Natural Gas Modernization, Public Safety and Jobs Bill (SB 1665/HB 2414) is that it will support more than 1,000 newly created jobs in Illinois. Work under Peoples Gas’ accelerated main replacement program, which began in 2011, has created these good-paying, highly-skilled and local jobs and presents career opportunities for these workers.
However, Illinois’ current regulatory environment is unpredictable, outdated, and inefficient. As a result, the status quo is holding back further investment and putting these jobs at risk. Illinois natural gas utilities need a legislative solution to have the continued confidence to invest in system upgrades and protect these jobs.
To meet the manpower needed for natural gas modernization, Peoples Gas partnered with Unions, DCEO and the City Colleges of Chicago to build a pipeline of skilled workers.
Without action, our state risks hurting the hardworking men and women performing the pipeline modernization work.
