State to Convene Public Utility Hearing Tuesday

Karen May, Daniel Biss and others to question ComEd, Illinois Commerce Commission.

Are you one of the more than 1 million people in Chicagoland who have ? 

Do you want to let your representatives in Springfield know your story? 

Do you want to hear what ComEd and the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC)—the agency that regulates ComEd—have to say? 

All of those things and more are possible when the Illinois House of Representatives Public Utilities Committee holds a hearing at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the . 

The meeting was organized by after thunderstorms and high winds knocked out power to more than 1 million ComEd customers. Many were without electricity for days. 

In Winnetka, which provides electric power to residents, no one was out of power for more than 12 hours during any of the storms. 

May is a committee member. will be a substitute member of the committee that day. Both May and Biss have been making an effort to help storm victims. 

May thinks the presence of the ICC members will create a more in-depth understanding for legislators and citizens alike than previous meetings she, Biss and have held with ComEd officials. 

“We’re looking forward to hearing from members of the ICC to better understand all the ramifications of the public policy and reliability,” May said. “It’s a little more in-depth. I’m looking forward to the opportunity for the legislators to talk to the ICC.”
