Company Gets Extra Time To Install Pollution Controls

An Illinois company is getting extra time to get its act together when it comes to pollution controls.  The state gave Midwest Generation two more years to install emission controls on their plants in Joliet, Pekin, Romeoville, and Waukegan.  The company is currently in bankruptcy proceedings and claims it can't afford to make the upgrades by the 2015 and 2016 deadlines, but some argue they won't install the controls before they go under.   Midwest Generation produces electricity by burning coal.  It's one of the largest independent power producers in the country.
