House Speaker Harwood calls for review of R.I.’s electricity deregulation law

“It is obvious that electricity deregulation isn’t working,” said the Speaker at an 11 a.m. news conference in the House Lounge at the State House. “It is not working in California, where blackouts are being predicted for as many as 30 days this summer. And it is not working in Rhode Island where residential electric rates are going through the roof,” he added. (California and Rhode Island were among the first states in the nation to deregulate their electricity generating industries.)
