Dunne this afternoon signed the pub
lic utilities commission bill.
This bill takes home rule from
Chicago, and is bitter medicine to

Delegations which included Mayor
Harrison and almost every member
of the council urged Gov. Dunne to

Gov. Dunne, however, remained

ation of the bill, they could imme
diately take over the ownership of
any public utility corporation they
pleased under the law signed by the
governor three days ago.
