Without Action In Springfield, Utilities Go Unchecked

In light of the latest federal indictment, it has never been more clear that Springfield needs to act immediately and pass legislation to hold utilities like ComEd accountable and restore trust in our political system.
After it first came to light that ComEd’s illegal lobbying scheme allowed them to overcharge customers by at least $150 million, the Clean Energy Jobs Act (CEJA) was updated to include accountability and ethics reforms to make sure this can’t happen again. But our elected leaders have not taken action.
Until lawmakers and Governor Pritzker pass the Clean Energy Jobs Act, we are stuck with the status quo. That means continued automatic rate hikes and no true transparency or accountability for utilities. It’s time to take action. CEJA can’t wait. Visit ilcleanjobs.org to learn more.
