A statement released yesterday by Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan called a piece of legislation supporting nuclear power in Illinois a bailout and one local lawmaker is not pleased with her stance.

 

State Sen. Chapin Rose says Madigan is wrong and even if her opinion this is a bailout he says to do what she did, when she did it it was wrong.

 

 

Sen. Rose says there's a lot of people working on this issue and he feels if Madigan wants to know what's going on, she needs to get engaged.

 

 

The legislature has a deadline of May 31 to pass legislation to bring Exelon onto a level playing field with other energy sources or they will make an announcement to decommission the plant.

Legislation is stuck in committee currently.
