No relief for Benton man

I feel for your small business owner in Benton because the reporter seems to have missed one important fact of this "relief"...business owners will not get any..your story makes it clear that the 'relief' goes to residential customers, not business owners. I own my own business, followed the instructions to log on to Ameren's website and got this message, "We're sorry, this account does not qualify for the General Assembly Rate Relief Credit. For more information on eligibility requirements".
Why are you reporting that this poor man will get a rebate check when he won't get anything?

This rate relief is biggest con ever pulled on the people of Illinois. Our lawmakers should be ashamed of themselves. They Ate at the Captains table and left us but crumbs and scraps. We have been sold out by those we elect to protect our interests. I think its time for another Boston Tea Party, this time in St.Louis at Ameren Headquarters on Chouteau Ave.( Right behind Union Station. Illinois Consumer are being bilked by Ameren Corporation!!!!!

With over a billion dollar settlement with Ameren, I still don't see any "relief" from the pitiful checks they are sending out. All I see is an excuse for when they drop the hammer down on we consumers especially when winter comes.
