Monday, September 12, 2011
On September 12, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn vetoed SB 1652, a bill that would have gutted the Illinois Commerce Commission’s authority to oversee electric rates and smart grid investments. ELPC joined Governor Quinn, Attorney General Lisa Madigan and other advocates in opposing this legislation. ELPC is advocating for more balanced legislation that protects consumers and ensures that investments in smart grid technology and energy efficiency benefit consumers and the environment.
