ICC says utility overcharged for system improvements during 2015. The Illinois Commerce Commission said Thursday it has ordered Peoples Gas to refund $7.2 million to customers for excessive charges the utility incurred in 2015 to replace aged pipes and for other infrastructure work. Of the total settlement, $3.5 million will be applied as a one-time credit on customers’ bills. Peoples Gas said the average refund will be $4 and will appear on bills within 90 days. Another $3.5 million will be set aside to help low-income customers get service reconnected and have amounts owed to Peoples Gas forgiven. The utility also was ordered to return $270,000 to customers in the form of a lower surcharge for its system work. The ICC said it is still investigating costs for the program from 2016, 2017 and 2018. A statement from Peoples Gas noted that the 2015 costs were incurred by its previous owner, Integrys Energy Group. “Since acquiring Peoples Gas in mid-2015, WEC Energy Group has worked closely with the ICC and its auditor to make substantial improvements in the management and efficiency” of its System Modernization Program, or SMP. The credit will appear on bills as “2015 SMP Adjustment,” the company said. The program calls for Peoples Gas to replace 2,000 miles of old mains, upgrade 300,000 customer service lines and relocate gas meters from inside buildings to the outside over 20 years. The company serves 873,000 customers within Chicago, not the suburbs. The settlement requires the utility to permanently remove $7 million from its rate base used in calculating delivery charges. In addition, the company agreed not to report to credit agencies any late customer payments through December 2028. Finally, the company must continue to solely fund the Share the Wealth program, which provides grants of up to $200 to customers having trouble paying their gas bill. A requirement that customers make a matching payment to get a grant was dropped last year. The Illinois attorney general’s office and the Citizens Utility Board worked with the ICC staff in building the case against Peoples Gas. They identified certain payments to contractors as being “imprudently incurred.”

Since the beginning of July, those Madigan allies have plunked three quarters of a million dollars into the speaker’s two political committees: Friends of Michael J. Madigan, and the 13th Ward Democratic Organization.  Seven legislators gave Mike Madigan a whopping $751,400 within the last few weeks — just as the powerful Illinois House speaker’s legal bills mount and federal investigations touch some of his allies. The lawmakers who spoke to the Chicago Sun-Times about what for most were six-figure donations insist it’s business as usual, routine fund-raising by the powerful Southwest Side Democrat, who also serves as Illinois Democratic Party chairman. “I’ve contributed to others in the past at similar levels,” said state Rep. Anna Moeller, D-Elgin, who gave $57,800. “It wasn’t out of the ordinary.” What is out of the ordinary is Madigan’s growing legal bills. So far this year, the speaker has spent $453,608 on lawyers from his campaign fund. Many Illinois politicians dip into their political accounts to pay legal expenses, but the amount Madigan has spent is raising eyebrows. The legislators interviewed did not ask why Madigan needed the money. Since the beginning of July, those Madigan allies have plunked three quarters of a million dollars into the speaker’s two political committees: Friends of Michael J. Madigan, and the 13th Ward Democratic Organization. That hefty cash infusion consisted of contributions of $57,800 — the maximum allowed by the Illinois Board of Elections this cycle — to one or both of those committees. Six of the allies who ponied up from their own committees this month gave the max to both Madigan funds, meaning they each forked over $115,600, election board records show. The $100,000-plus club included House Majority Leader Greg Harris, D-Chicago; Ald. Silvana Tabares (23rd); and State Representatives Michael Zalewski, D-Riverside; Emanuel “Chris” Welch, D-Hillside; Kathleen Willis, Addison; and Marcus C. Evans, D-Chicago. Friends of Michael J. Madigan has $7.4 million cash on hand, records show. Typically, the biggest contributors to that fund are super PACs, not politicians. Moeller said she got the call last week from a Madigan worker requesting one maximum contribution — which amounts to nearly a third of the $184,000 she reported in her own campaign war chest at the end of June. That’s the biggest single contribution Moeller’s fund has ever given, records show, though she has sent a handful of other $50,000-plus gifts to fellow House Democrats over the last four years. Moeller, like most of the others who gave this month, said she didn’t ask and wasn’t told what the money was for, and shrugged it off as a normal ask ahead of another election cycle. “He’s the party chairman. During campaigns, we’re often supporting fellow members of the caucus, and this is in the party,” Moeller said. Evans called it “normal procedure” with primary season looming. Nothing more than “regular party-building activity,” Harris said. Zalewski said he was “happy to oblige” with the next election coming up in March. Welch not only contributed but was outspoken about his support for the longest serving statehouse speaker in the country. “I actually believe it was because of his leadership that we have the super majority that we have currently,” Welch said. “And so, I support the speaker, and I’ll continue to support the speaker, and that’s why I donated to those accounts to continue to elect Democrats.” Tabares and Willis didn’t return messages seeking comment. Madigan typically hasn’t received such large contributions from his members, instead taking in big checks from labor unions and other PACs. Usually, the Democratic Party of Illinois, which Madigan also controls, doles out cash to legislators’and other candidates’ campaigns on his behalf. Although Madigan hitting up legislators for cash is unusual, it is not entirely without precedent. Several legislators donated the maximum allowed amounts in 2016 and 2017 to either Madigan’s committee or the Democratic Majority. The limits were $53,900 in 2016 and $55,400 in 2017. As for the money Madigan is spending on legal fees, $297,349 went to the firm Hinshaw & Culbertson, $62,398 went to his longtime attorney Michael Kasper; also a ComEd lobbyist; $50,275 to powerhouse firm Mayer Brown, $37,107 to Fox Swibel Levin & Carroll and $6,476 to Discovery LLC. The earliest sign of Madigan’s potential legal trouble this year came when a federal court affidavit first obtained by the Sun-Times revealed that Madigan had been secretly recorded during a 2016 meeting with then-Ald. Danny Solis (25th) and a developer who wanted to build a hotel in Chinatown. Though Madigan did not appear to cross any lines in that meeting, the document revealed that federal investigators have had their eye on Madigan for years. Specifically, the affidavit said they believed Solis had “agreed to take action in his official capacity as an Alderman for private benefits directed to Michael Madigan.” The home of Madigan ally Mike Zalewski, a former 23rd Ward alderman whose son is Rep. Mike Zalewski, was raided in May. The elder Zalewski was also subpoenaed. His lawyer, Thomas Breen, declined to comment. Madigan’s legal troubles also involve a pair of civil cases in federal court. Shortly after news broke of the 2016 recording, lawyers in one of those civil cases released a transcript of a deposition of Madigan taken last September. In it, Madigan was asked about Ald. Edward M. Burke (14th), who in a few months would find himself at the center of the hottest criminal investigation in town. “I would not describe it as a close working relationship,” Madigan said of Burke. Madigan was deposed in the civil case filed by Jason Gonzales, an unsuccessful primary challenger who claims Madigan planted “sham” candidates on election ballots. Gonzales’ lawyers are trying to convince a judge to let them take the case to a jury. Another lawsuit followed the uproar early in 2018 over accusations made by Alaina Hampton, a former campaign consultant, against Madigan aide Kevin Quinn, younger brother of Ald. Mary Quinn (13th). Hampton said Quinn sent her unwanted text messages and phone calls in pursuit of a romantic and sexual relationship. Hampton then filed her federal lawsuit against Madigan’s political committee and the state Democratic Party over the “severe and persistent sexual harassment” that she alleges went ignored for nearly a year despite her complaints. A Madigan spokesman did not return calls for comment on the contributions. Contributing: Mark Brown

Balloons adorn the fence outside Providence Englewood Charter School in May 2016 after Samyra Lee was struck and killed at the intersection while trying to cross Ashland Avenue near the school. | Andy Grimm for the Sun-Times The fatal accident took place in May 2016 while Samyra Lee was crossing the street with her mother on their way to Providence Englewood Charter School, 6515 S. Ashland Ave. Chicago taxpayers will spend $4 million to compensate the family of a 7-year-old Englewood girl killed in 2016 by a tractor being driven by a man who worked for a city contractor. The fatal accident occurred shortly before 8 a.m. on that May day while Samyra Lee was crossing the street with her mother on their way to Providence Englewood Charter School, 6515 S. Ashland Ave. Apparently arriving late for the start of school, the first-grader was holding hands with her mother while attempting to cross busy Ashland Avenue and were waiting in the middle of the intersection. That’s when they were hit by the tractor heading south on Ashland Avenue. Julicia Lee, the girl’s mother, suffered a hip injury, but refused treatment so she rush to Comer Children’s Hospital where her daughter was taken before being pronounced dead. Police initially said the tractor was leased by the city. But City Hall subsequently claimed that the tractor was owned by a private contractor hired by the city’s Department of Streets and Sanitation. The lawsuit filed by the Lee family names Truck Tire Sales as a defendant along with the city. A grandmother who witnessed the horrific aftermath of the crash told the Chicago Sun-Times that parents of students at Providence Englewood Charter had complained about the duration of the light at the intersection. Parents had also complained about the absence of a crossing guard to escort their young children across five lanes of traffic on Ashland Avenue in front of the school. The tractor driver was cited for failing to reduce speed to avoid an accident. The $4 million settlement is on the agenda for Monday’s meeting of the City Council’s Finance Committee. Aldermen will also be asked to approve a $650,000 settlement stemming from allegations of police misconduct. Details of that settlement are not known. At the time of the accident, Samyra was looking forward to a celebration dinner at Red Lobster and a trip to Great America. She had won free tickets to the Gurnee amusement park after greatly improving her reading scores. The dinner was supposed to be a family celebration of her achievement.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., holds a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, July 17, 2019. | AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite The increase would boost pay for some 30 million low-wage workers, but the bill has a slim chance of passing the Republican-controlled Senate. WASHINGTON — House Democrats approved legislation Thursday to raise the federal minimum wage for the first time in a decade, to $15 an hour, showcasing the progress and challenge of a signature issue for the party ahead of the 2020 election. The increase, which would boost pay for some 30 million low-wage workers, is intended as one answer to income inequality. A longshot project of liberal advocates just a few years ago, the $15 minimum is standard practice at some leading U.S. corporations. But passage was assured only after centrist Democrats, reluctant to embrace the party’s left flank, won adjustments, including a slower six-year phase-in of the wage. It was just the latest reminder of the sway moderates hold over the party’s policy decisions. Even though the bill’s chances in the Republican-controlled Senate are slim, and President Donald Trump is unlikely to sign it into law, the outcome is important because it puts $15 into the campaigns as the new benchmark for debate. “We’re testing candidates from the presidential all the way down to the school board,” said Mary Kay Henry, the president of the Service Employees International Union whose members cheered passage from the House gallery. “They have to raise wages,” Henry said, to address what she described as the inequality of the times. A hike in the $7.25 hourly wage has been a top Democratic campaign promise, and what Majority Leader Steny Hoyer of Maryland called Thursday the “right thing to do.” “America’s workers deserve a raise,” said Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a press conference with labor leaders and employees ahead of voting. Lifting a young girl into her arms, Pelosi said, “This is what it’s all about... It’s about family.” The last increase in the federal minimum occurred 10 years ago, the longest stretch without an adjustment since the wage floor was first enacted during the 1930s. The wage protection covers millions of low-wage workers in all types of jobs. Under the House bill, for the first time, tipped workers would be required to be paid the same as others earning the minimum, boosting their pay to $15 an hour, too. It’s now $2.13, in what labor scholars call a jarring remnant from the legacy of slavery, when newly freed workers received only tips. Republicans in the House balked at the wage hike, which would be the first since Democrats last controlled the majority. Just three Republicans joined most Democrats in passage, on a 231-199 vote. During the floor debate, Rep. Ronald Wright, R-Texas, called it a “disastrous bill.” Republicans have long maintained that states and municipalities are already able to raise the wage beyond the federal minimum, and many have done so. They warn higher wages will cost jobs, especially among smaller business owners. Wright said the bill should be renamed the “Raising Unemployment for American Workers Act.” While opponents have long said higher minimum wages lead to job losses, economists say new studies are casting doubt on those long-held theories. A report from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office sent mixed messages. It said more than 30 million workers would see bigger paychecks with a higher wage, lifting more than 1 million workers from poverty. It also said between 1 million and 3 million jobs could be lost. At time of wage stagnation and grave income inequality that’s playing out on the campaign trail, Democrats led by Rep. Bobby Scott, D-Va., the chairman of the House Education and Labor Committee, are willing to accept that tradeoff. But swift passage earlier this year ran into trouble when centrists and those Democrats from rural regions and Southern states raised concerns. While the new Democratic majority is often seen as pushing the House leftward, many of the freshmen are actually moderates from districts won by Trump in 2016. Those same freshmen will face some of the toughest reelection races in 2020. The moderate Blue Dog Coalition, led by Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-Fla., advocated for changes to the wage bill. With some two dozen members, the caucus has enough votes to deny Pelosi a majority and sink the legislation. They wanted the longer phase of six years instead of five. And they included an amendment requiring a report from the General Accountability Office, after the first phases of the wage hike, to assess the economic impact on jobs and whether wages should be fully raised to $15. “I’ve always been one to believe compromise is not a dirty word,” Murphy said in an interview. “It has helped us get things done.” Most members of the Blue Dogs and another centrist caucus, the New Democratic Coalition, ended up voting for the bill. They also held the line against a Republican alternative. Progressives and labor leaders said they could live with the changes. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, said the bill is popular back home and far from Trump’s characterization of Democrats as “socialists.” The idea of $15 hourly wage, “somehow that’s an out-of-the-mainstream thought?” he said. “Of course not.” Advocates who have been trying to boost wages for workers for years said they were stunned at how quickly the debate shifted. Sara Jayaraman, president of the Restaurant Opportunities Center United, group founded with displaced workers from the World Trade Center after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks, said boosting the tipped wages in particular, for waiters and other tipped workers, was a milestone. It’s “historic moment and a historic bill,” she said. “Once you start raising workers’ wages it’s hard to go back.”
