The Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration are among some five dozen Wisconsin organizations that have received more than $12 million in settlements for natural gas price fixing nearly 20 years ago…

Now four of the 11 defendants have agreed to a settlement that will be distributed among about 60 Wisconsin customers who were overcharged. Some of the largest recipients are the state Department of Administration, which will receive nearly $1.2 million; Milwaukee Public Schools will get almost $350,000; and the Madison Metropolitan School District will receive more than $90,000.
