Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Utilities Act. Provides that additional notice requirements apply for water or sewer utilities with greater than 2,500 total customers (rather than 15,000 total customers).

Provides that water utilities under the jurisdiction of the Illinois Commerce Commission shall not increase water and sewer rates by more than 2.5% annually. Provides that an acquisition of a water or sewer utility shall be paid for by shareholders and not existing ratepayers (rather than charging ratepayers in the tariff group into which the water or sewer utility is to be combined specific rates).
