Lawmakers Protest NYSEG Approval of 30% Electric and 17.8 % Gas Increase.

YORKTOWN – State Assemblyman Matt Slater (R, Yorktown) Monday criticized the State Public Service Commission for approving a “staggering” 30 percent increase in NYSEG’s electricity delivery rates and a 17.8 percent increase in its gas delivery rates over the next three years. Slater called those increases unsustainable, saying there is an affordability crisis in the state. “That affordability crisis is being fueled by an energy crisis because the energy policies for the state are just not adding up, and they ae not adding up because they don’t provide any type of cost estimate for the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act,” he said. “All we see is increase after increase and it is not fair that it falls on the backs of our taxpayers,” said Assemblyman Anil Beephan, Jr. (R, East Fishkill). “The Public Service Commission needs to do better. They need to listen to the residents of the Hudson Valley and stop driving them out of New York with these ridiculous policies.”
