Illinois seizing clean-energy funds to balance budget

Illinois seizing clean-energy funds to balance budget | Healthy Homes Chicago Initiative | Scoop.it
A House-passed short-term budget fix to plug a $1.6 billion shortfall would snatch nearly $100 million in ratepayer-funded money to invest in renewable energy projects.
Jim Gramata's insight:

The carrot has been and will always be a new revenue stream for governments and corporations to get on board. In this case the State and the new governor are taking the rate payer's money (my money) and using it to fill poor government management instead of pushing our state forward in the renewable energy field. That is disappointing.
