Exelon: Another federal subpoena received on lobbying

FILE - In this June 2, 2019 file photo Illinois State Sen. Martin Sandoval, D-Chicago, at the Illinois State Capitol, in Springfield, Ill. Even the normally unflappable speaker of the Illinois House Michael Madigan had to pause at the sight of FBI agents entering the Democratic side of the Capitol building this week and later hauling away containers of documents from a lawmaker's office. The Capitol raid Monday was at the office of state Sen. Martin Sandoval, who represents a southwest side Chicago district that overlaps with Madigan's district.

CHICAGO (AP) — Exelon says in a new public filing that it and its electric utility, ComEd, have received a second federal subpoena asking about lobbying in Illinois and communications with a state senator whose offices the FBI recently raided.

The Securities and Exchange Commission filing Wednesday says last week's subpoena "requires production of records of any communications with certain individuals and entities," including state Sen. Martin Sandoval.

A grand jury issued the first subpoena over the summer.

Authorities haven't disclosed the purpose of multiple raids this year at homes and offices of Illinois Democrats. Agents entered Sandoval's Capitol office last month. A message seeking comment from Sandoval Thursday wasn't returned.

The filing says the companies "have cooperated fully" with Chicago-based federal prosecutors. It says Exelon formed a committee to oversee compliance.
