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.

Its amazing to see someone put so much passion into a subject. I'm glad I came across this. I'm glad I took the time to read on past the first paragraph. You've got so much to say, so much to offer.thai dating sites

Horrible.  It's obvious Horn has completely been paid off to keep competition and free markets out of the energy business here in Michigan.  His morals must stop at his pocket book.
