Tom Crawford of Georgia Report has written a great opinion piece about Georgia Power’s billion dollar rate request. He begins by asking readers to imagine the statewide response if one of Georgia’s gubernatorial candidates proposed a billion dollar tax increase.
Crawford’s answer: “That candidate would be burned to a crisp in the ensuing political firestorm…His chances of winning the governor’s office would be zero.”
Crawford goes on to explain why a similar response to the Georgia Power rate request is warranted. Read Crawford’s piece here.
