Illinois Commerce Commission Asks Utilities Not To Disconnect Service

Illinois’ utility regulators are asking the state’s power, gas, and water companies not to shut-off service til the spring. The Illinois Commerce Commission yesterday asked utilities across the state to continue their disconnection moratorium through the winter. Commissioners say there are too many people who are still either out of work or who can’t make ends meet. The ICC is suggesting that utilities leave service as-is until next March.
