Introduced by Rep. Paul Opsommer (R) on September 11, 2012, to require utilities to implement a system for allowing customers to read their own meters and self-report electricity or gas use.

The option would remain available only for customers who are regular and “reasonably accurate” in their reporting. Full Text and Analysis.
Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on September 11, 2012.
