Email says ComEd wrote column for Ill. legislator
ROCKFORD – An email shows the utility giant ComEd wrote a column for a member of the Illinois House utilities committee to submit to a local newspaper under his own name, the Rockford Register-Star reported Wednesday.
Rep. Charles Jefferson submitted a 420-word guest column to the Register-Star. In it, the Rockford Democrat urged state regulators to reverse a $168 million cut in customers’ energy delivery rates. The column said the loss of money would impede ComEd’s efforts to modernize its power grid, creating 2,000 jobs around the state.
ComEd said Jefferson expressed interest in writing a letter to the newspaper and the company was “pleased to support his effort and ensure accuracy of the statement.”
