Last week, Illinois Democrats were finally able to pass energy legislation striving for zero-carbon in Illinois.
A central Illinois lawmaker weighed in on the legislation Monday and discussed what it means for Clinton and the Exelon Nuclear Power Plant. On the WHOW Morning Show Monday, State Representative Dan Caulkins called an energy policy that is not sustainable. He says there is a difference of opinion on how much of an impact it will have on people.
The Decatur Republican believes this bill will be a good thing for the Clinton Power Station when the current 10-year deal expires in another four or five years.
The Illinois Farm Bureau was opposed to the measure.
