Side with Working Families, Not Monopoly Utility Providers

LANSING, MI, November 5, 2015 — Michigan Freedom Fund President Terri Reid issued the following statement today following the House Energy Policy Committee’s passage of HB 4298:

“Today’s passage of House Bill 4298 by the House Energy Policy Committee came after a rushed process conducted almost entirely in secret,” said Reid. “The result is substitute language approved today that hurts Michigan ratepayers, schools, and job creators who already face the highest electric costs in the region.”

 “Electric choice should be expanded, not eliminated. Competition serves as the best method of lowering energy costs for Michigan’s hardworking families and keeping the large, monopoly utility providers honest.”
