Report: State Senators Urge More Than $100M Fine for Pepco, BGE

A letter and an online petition call for Public Service Commission action, WTOP reported.

Maryland representative from Montgomery and Prince George's county are urging state regulators to take severe action against Pepco and Baltimore Gas and Electric following the June 29 storm and its elongated, widespread power outages.

Senators Brian E. Frosh (D-Dist. 16) of Bethesda and Sen. James C. Rosapepe (D-Dist. 21) of College Park, suggested fines reaching more than $100 million for the power service providers and "wrote in a letter Thursday to the Public Service Commission that the money could be used to create a 'Surge Reserve' fund to pay for additional trained workers to help restore power faster," according to a report by WTOP.

The senators also have opened an online petition for local consumers to sign in support of the sanctions, WTOP reported.

You mean the state state "nitwit" democrat senators want to fine the electric companies. If they would saty out, all would be MUCH better. Dems have no idea how a business is run.
