Don't Raise My Gas & Electric Rates!
Managing my utility costs are already a major headache and a
strain on my wallet. I can't handle an unnecessary increase on rates for
electricity and gas I'm not even using. This anti-consumer legislation is NOT
okay. Energy companies should not be able to forecast my gas & electric
usage and charge me before I use it - if I use it.
Stand up to the energy lobby
and stand for Maryland ratepayers.
Please consider the burden the
passage of this legislation may have on lower-income and fixed-income
ratepayers such as myself. Don't give utility companies like Exelon,
BG&E, Pepco, Delmarva Power and Washington Gas the flexibility to
increase utility rates as they see fit, on a whim.

Late Wednesday night, the House Economic Matters Committee sided with Energy Industry lobbyists to pass HB 653 "Electric Companies and Gas Companies Rate Regulation Alternative Rate Plans," also known as the "Utility Wish List." This anti-consumer legislation will upend the regulatory authority of the Public Service Commission, which protects Maryland's utility rate payers, especially seniors on fixed incomes. Please stand up to the Energy Lobby and vote "No" on this bill.
