From Harford County Council District C Councilman Jim McMahan:
Capt’n Jim’s “Coffee Talk”©
May 18, 2012
There have been a lot of questions about smart meters and whether there is an option to reject them. Del. Pat McDonough co-sponsored legislation during the 2012 session of the Maryland General Assembly that would have provided that option to consumers. However the bill failed in committee by heavy lobbying by special interests. The People’s Council will be presenting a case before the Maryland Public Service Commission on Tuesday, May 22, 2012 at 10 A.M.; Public Service Commission, 6 St. Paul Street 16th Floor Hearing Room, Baltimore, MD 21202
The purpose of the hearing is to provide consumers the right to reject the smart meter. It is very important that you contact the Public Service Commission to express your support for the People’s Council’s position and your right to opt-out of the program if you are so inclined. The contact at the Public Service Commission is:
