Pressure Legislature
to stop utility charge

As expected, last week the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) proposed a new fixed charge for utility bills — $24 a month for most ratepayers — that is twice the national average and will raise bills for millions of Californians.

The CPUC’s proposed utility charge will increase electricity bills on millions of people who live in apartments and small homes, as well as solar users.

The Legislature can stop the utility charge. Only sustained public voices will give lawmakers the backbone to stand up to the utilities.

Please call your assemblymember and state senator and tell them not to be fooled by the CPUC’s proposal.

GOP are originalists
when it’s convenient

Re: “Originalists needed on the Supreme Court” (Page A6, March 29).

This nonsense about originalism has to stop. An allegedly high-minded justification for adhering to time-honored principles, it is invoked when it is convenient and conveniently abandoned when it is not.
