It's almost guaranteed that ComEd customers will see a three dollar increase on their electric bills. The Illinois House overwhelmingly passed a measure Wednesday that approves the hike, which will only be stopped if lawmakers fail to override the governor's veto. The measure will allow the company to raise electric rates every year for the next ten years. The new bill reduces some of the perks and profits that ComEd and Ameren would have received from the original deal.
