RE: Support for HB 1294
We are writing to you to ask you to support House Bill 1294. This bill would b authorize the Public Utility Commission to approve alternate rate-making mechanisms for utilities to encourage accelerated improvements to utility infrastructure.
The quality of utility services to customers depends on the quality of the infrastructure over which those services are proved. While each utility faces different circumstances, much utility infrastructure is aged and ready for replacement. Investments to modernize this infrastructure will create jobs, maintain and enhance the reliability and safety of utility services, and meet the needs of customers.
