You think things are bad in your state? This state has you beat. A mere three weeks into the "reform" Dem governor's term and the Commission in charge of protecting consumers from utilities (can you say captive customers with near-inelastic demand?) has been stacked with people that have no understanding of utilities or consumer protection law. The only thing that links these shills to the Commission is their cosy relationships to the utilities they were appointed to regulate. This is where the GOV (ala Mel Brooks) evidently pays back the contributors to his $45 million war chest. It sickens me that an expert body such as this can be so obviously captured by the entities that it is supposed to regulate. I wonder if each new member is given a shiny new rubber stamp on their first day on the job.
