A ComEd-backed bill that bulks up the revenue the utility will receive as it modernizes the electrical grid has passed the Illinois House and now heads to the governor.
The bill’s swift passage Thursday by a 86-to-28-vote was crucial for ComEd, which expects to see a veto by Gov. Pat Quinn. A spokeswoman for Quinn said the governor opposes the bill. He has 60 days to act on the bill once the House officially ships it to him. The bill is expected to be vetoed.
