Re: Correction for Consumers’ Counsel’s Testimony on H.B. 772
Dear Chair Wilson and Members of the Energy and Public Utilities Committee, Thank you for the opportunity to testify today on H.B. 772. I am writing to correct one statement in my testimony today for the Consumers’ Counsel. On testimony page four we stated that “House Bill 772 will repeal that anti-consumer budget-bill provision protecting FirstEnergy profits.” H.B. 772 does not, in fact, include repeal of this provision in H.B. 166. (We do hope such a repeal of this FirstEnergy profits issue can be added to H.B. 772 for consumer protection.)
OCC’s original testimony is attached to this letter. We respectfully request for accuracy that this letter, with the original testimony attached, be posted in the place of the OCC testimony currently posted on the Committee’s web page. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you.
Sincerely, Jeff Jacobson (For the Ohio Consumers’ Counsel)
