Governor Sandoval Vetoes Energy Bill2011-06-20 03:55:00
The Las Vegas Sun reported this past Friday that Governor Sandoval vetoed AB416:
Gov. Brian Sandoval vetoed a controversial transmission line and energy bill that had been heavily pushed by the state’s most powerful lobbyists during the final hour of the 2011 Nevada legislative session.
Sandoval, in his veto message for Assembly Bill 416, expressed concerns about the potential impact on Nevada ratepayers and that the bill would allow NV Energy to circumvent normal approvals from the Nevada Public Utilities Commission.
What are your thoughts about the veto? Are there things that could be done to protect and assure ratepayers that they will benefit from expanding and exporting our renewable resources?
