Hello Friends of Safe Tech,
This is to alert you that there is a bill that we need to support in the New York State Senate, S.5632, https://www.nysenate.gov/legislation/bills/2023/S5632 , re-introduced by Senator Pete Harckham, that would go a long way towards sensible utility metering policies. It would allow you to keep your analog water, gas, or electric meter with no fee, or to have such re-instated. It is sitting right now in the Senate Consumer Protection Committee. Please call your Assembly Member and see if they might be persuaded to introduce a companion bill. And call Senator Kevin Thomas, head of the Senate Consumer Protection Committee, to let him know this is a priority! Please keep in touch with any ideas or progress!
