Down the home stretch: please help us get across the finish line!
H.B. 4435 is on the agenda of the Senate Energy, Industry and Mining Committee at 1:00 p.m. tomorrow (Tuesday). This bill would allow utilities to obtain "expedited rate recovery" for upgrades to boilers (the normal practice is that such upgrades must be "used and useful" before the costs can be incorporated into electric rates paid by consumers). ... We oppose the bill because it is just another excuse by out-of-state corporations to gouge local ratepayers. Please contact committee members and tell them to VOTE NO!
