Democrats to Seek Power Price Controls

Democratic lawmakers are expected to announce a proposal this week that would make it a felony to sell
electricity at unreasonable rates in California.

The measure could be subject to the state´s three-strikes law.

It would likely mean convicted
energy sellers could face stiff fines or jail time.

Under the proposal expected to be released tomorrow, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission
would determine what are reasonable rates.
