Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Utilities Act. Provides that a public utility may apply for expedited review for a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the construction of any new high voltage service line that does not exceed 25 miles in length across privately owned real estate (instead of any new high voltage electric service line). Provides that privately owned real estate does not include a right-of-way owned in fee simple, subject to an easement, or controlled by a public utility. Provides that the changes apply to applications filed on or after the amendatory Act's effective date. Provides that if a public utility seeks to exercise its eminent domain powers after the Illinois Commerce Commission has issued an order regarding a certificate of public convenience and necessity, then the Commission must issue its order regarding eminent domain within 365 days (instead of 45 days) after the public utility files its petition. Effective immediately.
