Contributions to Local State Reps from Energy & Utility Companies

There’s been a lot of talk about how ComEd and Ameren are spreading a lot of cash among state legislative leaders in hopes of an override of the governor’s veto of the Smart Grid legislation. Here’s a look at 2011 contributions from energy and utility companies to our legislators, State Rep. Bob Pritchard and State Sen. Christine Johnson.

Citizens for Pritchard
Ameren, $600, 8/2
Illinois River Energy, LLC, $1000, 8/9
MidAmerica Energy Company, $600, 7/25
Nicor, $500, 8/9
Ameren, $500, 5/9
ComEd PAC, $250, 6/1
NextEra Energy Resources, $500, 1/14

Citizens for Johnson
Ameren Illinois, $750, 4/11
Ameren Illinois, $1000, 5/2

Sen. Johnson voted against the legislation and has said she’ll probably vote against the override, too. Rep. Pritchard supports the legislation.
