These are "elected officials" not employees. They are not entitled to heath insurance in my thinking based on the hours they work. I do realize they put in more time than the council meeting. But they are still a long way from being full time. Why are city taxpayers being burdened with the cost of their heath care when the county and the school board do not feed at the trough? The total cost for the…

And why should this stop? It's all part of their compensation. They spend a lot more time than what you see on TV. For example, if you eliminate the health care you reduce the likelihood of a small business owner wanting to run. Plus it also means most of the council members have the same health insurance as other city employees...which seems like a jolly good idea There are two reasons…

Why does the proposal have the size of the House and Senate in it? It should have only dealt with whether voters support term limits for our corrupt politicians. However even with the House and Senate changes in it, it should be allowed to be voted on by voters. The only reason Quinn and Madigan oppose the measure is because it threatens their power and control.

In other words Quinn's figures are a lie and a distortion of the true employment and unemployment numbers. Numbers I've seen that show only 47% of working American's have full time jobs. That is hardly good news for workers.

Ameren told to lower electricity delivery rates

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.
