aka a tax: O’Malley to seek surcharge to harden Md. electric grid
You know how this is going to go. And, say, isn’t this another case of a Democrat putting more of the burden on the middle class? Why, yes, yes, I believe it is.
Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley (D) on Wednesday will ask the state’s utility regulators to adopt a controversial plan to allow electric companies to charge ratepayers in advance of serious maintenance upgrades.
In exchange, the utilities would have to meet a stricter standard of reliability.
