STOP THE BLANK CHECK TO XCEL

On behalf of over 680,000 AARP members in Colorado, we are asking for your NO vote on House Bill 19-1313 by Representative K.C. Becker and Senator Faith Winter 

The bottom line is simple: House Bill 19-1313 will raise your electric rates and jeopardize power reliability for all Xcel and Black Hills customers. The harmful, costly and unnecessary legislation could cause existing power plants to retire prematurely and forces electric utility customers for the first time to pay for economic redevelopment costs in the affected communities. 

Older Coloradans, many of whom are on fixed incomes, should not be forced to pay for this scheme to diversify power sources. AARP takes no position on fuel sources. We are exclusively focused on fair utility rates.

Under House Bill 19-1313, power grid operations could be turned over to Washington, D.C. via the need to join a grid operator run by the federal government.    

The bill adds two new surcharges to your power bill — one to fund worker re-training and the other for all compliance costs related to the bill. Both bypass normal Public Utilities Commission review. 

Stop this blatant end run around the PUC and protect Colorado consumers. We can’t afford and we don’t need this legislation.
