State Senator Pam Althoff provided the deciding vote in overriding Governor Pat Quinn’s veto of the Commonwealth Edison/Ameren electric rate increase bill.
The veto override of the veto of Senate Bill 1652 passed by just one vote.
That means every one of the “Yes” votes can be characterized as the deciding vote.
With Althoff having no election opponent, she will walk away from the vote unscathed.
The other two area Senators, Dan Duffy and Chris Lauzen voted against the bill.
Some of these others, however, will come under heavy attack during primary and/or general elections. These State Senators voted “Yes:”
- Collins, A.
- Johnson, T.
- Jones, E.
- Jones, J.
