The Illinois Senate adjourned yesterday without calling the Tenaska Bill for a vote. The measure would OK the $3.5 billion coal to gas plant to be built north of Taylorville While the project would mean hundreds of jobs for the area, some legislators have voiced concerns that it would mean high energy prices for consumers and businesses alike. Supporters say the facility would add to the available baseline power, meaning lower prices. The bill, sponsored by senate president John Cullerton, is expected to be called before senators sometime today.
