Statement on passage of energy legislation

State Senator Steve McClure (R-Springfield) released the following statement following Illinois Senate’s passage of energy legislation:

“This legislation includes the largest power rate hike in the history of our state. Even worse, it will kill jobs through closures and increased costs, it will reduce the stability of our power grid, it strips property rights away from landowners, and treats power generators differently based on whether they are public or private, all while likely leading the state to have to import coal-generated power from other states at a higher cost.”
