California Proposal to Lower Electricity Costs

Ellen Ciurczak of member station KQED reports that the California state senate has passed an emergency measure that would reduce the cost of electricity. The state assembly won't consider the bill until after next week's Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles. Under deregulation, electric bills for some Californians have doubled and even tripled this summer.
