Long Island Power Authority Rate Hikes Trigger Audit

A Statement from Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head)
April 27, 2011
I welcome Governor Cuomo’s call for the New York State Inspector General to audit the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA). Long Islanders already pay among the highest energy prices in the country, to add unlawful rate increases is simply criminal. People have a right to know where their money is going, and I am confident the audit will provide a greater level of transparency and address some of the authority’s notorious shortcomings.
