A Big Labor – supported bill would really just enrich Big Energy, according to a key opponent of the Climate Union Jobs Act.
State Rep. Larry Walsh, Jr. (pictured) (D-Elwood) talked up a seemingly endless list of climate- and labor-friendly benefits of the bill, which, he said, “doubles our investment in renewable energy credits to spark the development of renewable energy in areas most in need.”
Illinois Public Interest Research Group director Abe Scarr says CUJA doubles something, all right: “It doubles down on the worst policies passed during Com Ed’s corrupt scheme and makes them worse,” he said. “What’s worse: it’s often misleading about its intent.”
HB 1472 has passed the House Public Utilities Committee.
