New Push for Legislation to End Special Surcharge on Energy Bills

(IOCI RADIO) – There’s a renewed push for legislation ending a special surcharge on natural gas bills.

Lawmakers approved the surcharge in 2013 to help utilities pay for urgent infrastructure repairs, according to Rep. Joyce Mason of Gurnee.

Mason’s proposal would end the surcharge on People’s Gas, Nicor and Ameren Illinois bills.

She said families are “already struggling to pay home heating costs and don’t need to be saddled with extra fees.”
