Putting Georgia Power’s Billion Dollar Rate Request in Context

September 15, 2010

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.
