(WTVO) — People living in Illinois will get a refund on their electric bills next spring as part of a $31 million agreement with ComEd.

The utility agreed to the refunds for its role in a bribery scheme to curry favor with then House Speaker Michael Madigan. The Illinois Commerce Commission approved the settlement, which will work out to about $5 per customer.

Residents will see the refund in the form of a bill credit on their electric bill next April.
