Schimel Statement On Utility Company

Assemblywoman Michelle Schimel (D-Great Neck) has released the following statement on Governor Andrew Cuomo’s proposal for a new Long Island utility company.

 

“The reforming of Long Island’s electric utility is a step in the right direction. However, I have yet to see the Governor’s proposed legislation, which will frame how this new plan will be implemented. I have given the Governor a detailed list of imperatives that I want to see in his plan, which includes public hearings, a debt management plan, strict oversight over the utility provider, and a stable rate base. I look forward to working with the Governor and my legislative colleagues so we can have a plan in place before the end of the legislative session.”
