Statewide update—March 11, 2011

Peoria Journal StarEditorial: Senate bill an unnecessary assault on open government, “Under a bill set to be debated soon on the Senate floor – SB 1645 – government bodies could get far more time to consider requests for public records from folks they’ve deemed to be pests… Those would be citizens who file more than 15 requests for records in a year, or five within a month, or five total that fit under the subjective definition of burdening a government body.”

  • (AP) SouthtownStarComEd rate hike under fire, “The elderly and unemployed showed up at an ICC hearing on Thursday asking regulators to reject a rate increase and a pilot surcharge. Together, they would add $5.25 to an average resident’s monthly bill of $86.”
