Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Public Utilities Act. Requires a utility to waive the utility's initial credit and deposit requirements for a period of 60 days for a residential customer or applicant who is a victim of domestic violence. Provides that the domestic violence must be certified by treating medical personnel, law enforcement personnel, a State's Attorney, the Attorney General, or a domestic violence shelter. The certification letter must be printed on the certifying entity's letterhead or accompanied by a letter on the certifying entity's letterhead that identifies the certifying individual.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Changes the program from a waiver to a deferral of deposit. Provides that to be eligible for the deferral, the domestic violence must have been the basis for the issuance of an order of protection or be certified by certain officials.
