If he has no money, who is paying the attorneys? Let the bond fit the crime, not his checkbook. And if there actually is no money, that's what Public Defenders are for.

This is what our government has resorted to "symbolism over substance". If people do a hash tag then everyone will feel better about the problem and we won't need to do anything about the problem. Even if we could convince ourselves that terrorism was, in one case, work place violence the perpetrator(s) won't be convinced and we may feel better, but the problem is unchanged. Michael Moore…

CoolEdge, Maybe that is what the aldermen are asking for. Transparency ! There is nothing in the City Code that excludes the aldermen from seeing proposals or names of involved companies. Heck look at the article from QSD, they have released the names of the companies that they are looking at to oversee their project. They just cannot release how much the bids are. The Mayor can voice his feelings…

I agree that he should not be treated any differently, but that is the reason given for the trial delay. And you're exactly right about bond being based on the crime, which means that contrary to pimpdaddystyle's opinion, a murder charge does not justify a reduced or recognizance bond. His attorneys say in the aforementioned article that they have not even bothered to ask for a reduction…

Christmas just came early for Downstate Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois

From from herald-review.com:

Christmas just came early for Central Illinois, but not for Ameren Illinois. Regulators have told the utility to cut the rates it charges for delivering electricity by $45 million in 2014.

Next up will be a natural gas delivery rate reset, and this time, an administrative law judge, who makes recommendations as part of the state’s utility bill review process, is calling for the utility to get $36 million in annual revenue from its gas customers instead of the $47 million it had asked for.

The state’s utility regulators, the Illinois Commerce Commission, will meet to decide the gas rate Dec. 18.

Its decision to cut 2014 electricity rates was announced late Monday, takes effect Jan. 1 and will last a year under a new annual system of billing reviews known as formula ratemaking. Ameren Illinois is expected to be back before the ICC by the spring to request new electricity delivery rates for 2015.

In the meantime, the utility said Monday that it hasn’t had a chance to review the 2014 decision and figure out what action it may take.
