Exelon Corp. said Tuesday that its executive compensation package received an advisory OK from three-quarters of shareholder votes during the annual meeting, which the Chicago energy company held in Baltimore. About 20 shareholders attended the Tuesday meeting. The sole question came from Cherylyn Harley LeBon with the National Center for Public Policy Research, a Washington group that advocates for the free market and is critical of efforts on climate change. Referencing a New York Times story that detailed the company's ties with President Barack Obama, LeBon asked how much money Exelon made by influencing clean-air regulation and "surreptitiously eliminating" coal power-plant competitors.
