The special session will surely provide some electric rate relief,0,6446755.story?coll=bal-home-headlines

See today's Sun article. If the special legislative session that will soon begin does nothing else, we will have a reconstituted Public Service Commission. That body, which appears too business-oriented and not enough consumer-oriented, has done enough damage. Members of both political parties will be competing to see who can look like the greatest savior for the rate-paying and voting public. This issue does directly affect a whole lot of people and the pressure is on to provide some kind of remedy. Legislators and the governor cannot afford to look like they're not interested in providing as much of a remedy as possible.
