Introduced by Sen. Arlan Meekhof (R) on March 21, 2012, to partially roll-back a 2008 law that itself mostly undid an electric utility competition law enacted in 2000. Under the 2008 law, utility companies that until 2000 were regulated monopolies got back most of their regional monopolies, except that alternative producers could provide up to 10 percent of the demand in their region. The bill would gradually raise that cap to 28 percent over three years, plus up to 3 percent more per year thereafter, subject to many conditions, restrictions and procedures specified in the bill.
Referred to the Senate Energy and Technology Committee on March 21, 2012.
