Q: How many different people does it take to lay pipe in the ground?
A: 50: 1 to dig the hole, 1 to put in the pipe, 5 to supervise and 43 to audit, regulate, review, police and provide oversight
The Illinois Commerce Commission, the entity responsible for oversight over utility monopolies in Illinois, has announced that the Peoples Gas pipeline replacement project be reopened and investigated.
Peoples Gas has been digging up Chicago streets for over a year as part as part of what was a $5.7 billion and is now projected to be over $7 billion. The ICC previously investigated Peoples Gas and fined them $18 million, oh but they approved $3.5 billion of the project!
Perhaps the ICC will hold Peoples Gas accountable for spending recklessly and not approve billions while barely slapping their hand with a petty fine
