2012 House Bill 5733: Completely restore big utility monopolies
  1. Introduced by Rep. Kenneth Horn (R) on June 13, 2012, to eliminate the last remnants of a 2000 law that took away regional electric utility monopolies and authorized customer choice, a regime that was mostly eliminated by a 2008 law that essentially restored the monopolies by limiting customer choice to just 10 percent of the market. Existing customer contracts with competing electricity providers would be “grandfathered,” but no additional customers could get service from a competing provider.
    • Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on June 13, 2012.
