ILLINOIS HOUSE BILL HB4508

Posted on May 29, 2018

Candlewick Lake Association Board of Directors officially opposes Illinois House Bill 4508.   Previously, you were asked to contact our Senator Dave Syverson asking him to vote no.   HB 4508 was passed in the State House and the State Senate and now goes to the governor’s desk.  Now we are asking you to contact Governor Rauner and urge him to veto HB 4508.  This legislation could raise water rates for a lot of Illinois consumers.  It would allow the state’s biggest private water companies (Illinois American Water and Aqua Illinois) to automatically raise their existing customers’ rates to bankroll the purchase of municipal water systems.

It is important to act on this as soon as possible.

The Citizen’s Utility Board (CUB) has sent out a link to make it easy to let the Governor know you oppose this bill and request that he veto it.
