Leadership and staff from the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency (IEPA), the Illinois Commerce Commission (ICC), and the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO),  joined several Prairie State owners and Illinois electric cooperative members for a tour of the campus today. IEPA Director, Lisa Bonnett, and ICC Chairman, Doug Scott, were among those in attendance and are pictured above at the coal mine with Paul Krivokuca, Prairie State's Senior VP of Mining.

After completing a surface tour of the mine, the group held discussions about the proposed carbon regulation, and ended the visit with a tour of the power plant.
