Ra: Audit Responsible Move To Deliver Timely Relief To Homeowners

Legislative Statement by Assemblyman Edward Ra (21st Assembly District)
April 28, 2011

I am encouraged by the announcement of Governor Cuomo today that will finally shed light on what the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) has kept in the dark for too long. The order for a thorough audit of LIPA signifies that there needs to be more accountability to the already overtaxed ratepayers. Im hopeful that many questions will be answered by this audit and that there will finally be some relief for homeowners and small businesses that are currently forced to pay some of the highest utility costs in the nation.
